What We Do

  • Imagine a Portland that everyone can call home Photo courtesy of Proud Ground.

The Portland Housing Bureau (PHB) is charged with making sure all residents have safe, stable homes. We are guided in our work by three core goals: ending homelessness, increasing the availability of rental housing, and promoting stable homeownership. We're focused on eliminating racial and cultural barriers to housing. View our strategic plan.

Our Investment Priorities

  1. Provide more rental housing for the most vulnerable people.
  2. Move people quickly from homelessness to permanent housing while preventing families from losing their homes.
  3. Help Portlanders from communities of color buy a home or keep the home they already own.
  4. Provide a safety net that includes shelters and other short-term help for low-income Portlanders who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
