In 1985, Oregon legislature authorized a property tax exemption for low-income housing held by charitable, nonprofit organizations.

The tax exemption is intended to benefit low-income renters by alleviating property tax burden on those agencies that provide this housing opportunity. The qualifying property must be located within the City of Portland.
