Since 1985 the Oregon Lottery has been providing economic development funds around the state.

Eugene Industrial Land Studied with Oregon Lottery Money
Lane County officials have for years wanted to develop 300-acres of industrial land at the intersection of Interstate 5 and Highway 58.

The Oregon Lottery has provided more than $3 billion in economic growth funding since 1985, making projects like these possible around the state.
