Colonia Paz, which was completed in 2022, got a $3.6 million tax credit from OHDC to offset construction costs.

Oregon lawmakers are being asked to decide whether to extend a tax credit designed to help incentivize the development of agricultural workforce housing, allowing housing developers to claim credit for projects completed before January 2030.

Community-based housing developers say it works just fine.

The Statesman Journal looked into the program to understand how it works.
