Oroville Harvest Shelter Renovation
Project Outline:

The City of Oroville is considering an application to the Washington State Department of Commerce for the 2019 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for a General Purpose Grant in the amount of approximately $400,000, but not to exceed $750,000. CDBG General Purpose Grants can be used for planning or construction of public infrastructure, community facilities, affordable housing, and economic development projects.
CDBG funds are awarded only to eligible cities, towns, and counties. However, it is common for the local jurisdiction to partner with a local organization who applies for and implements a CDBG-funded project. If awarded, the City of Oroville will partner with the Oroville Housing Authority as sub-recipient to apply for and implement these funds to connect the Oroville Harvest Shelter to city sewer.
The Oroville Harvest Shelter “the Shelter”, owned by the Oroville Housing Authority, currently consists of 18 trailers and 2 stick-built structures. Two additional stick-built structures will be constructed on the property. The Shelter houses seasonal farmworkers from mid-May to mid-November. From mid-November to mid-April the Shelter provides temporary housing to homeless individuals and families. During this off-season period, the facility is referred to the Oroville Winter Emergency Camp (OWEC). The OWEC is the only homeless facility north of Omak and provided a total of 657 bed nights of warm and safe housing for 22 homeless individuals in 2018. The local growers in the Oroville area rely on this housing in order to maintain a farm workforce in Oroville. In 2018, the Shelter provided seasonal housing for 108 farm workers. This influx of farmworkers also provides a much-needed boost to our local economy.
