Before receiving the $3.3 million federal grant, The Housing Authority of Portland originally intended to use some of its own funds to pay for the Old Town/Chinatown’s Resource Access Center.

But now, that money can be diverted to Hillsdale Terrace, an existing subsidized housing project that HAP considers one of its dingiest and most deserving of renovation.

The six-acre property, on the boundary between Multnomah Village and Hillsdale in Southwest Portland, needs several million dollars in renovation work. Previously, HAP received a Hope VI grant, which was set aside for that project. Hillsdale Terrace will be the agency’s first large-scale renovation project since Humboldt Gardens, which started in 2005.
