Portland Housing Advisory Commission Seeks New Members

Click here to download a PDF of this announcement.

Portland Housing Advisory Commission (PHAC), a volunteer public advisory body that advises the Portland Housing Bureau’s Director, Housing Commissioner, and Portland City Council on a range of housing policy and program issues, seeks new members.

The mission of the Portland Housing Bureau (PHB) is to focus community resources on the unmet housing needs of the people of Portland. We accomplish this with expertise and direction from the PHAC. The PHAC promotes improvements within PHB and the larger housing system, advises on issues of equity in access and outcomes for Portlanders in PHB programs, and increases the profile of PHB in the community. The PHAC functions as PHB's Budget Advisory Committee, satisfying local requirements for citizen participation in the City’s annual budget process. In this role, the PHAC assists in aligning PHB’s resources—including federal funds, local general fund, and the “Affordable Housing Set-aside” of tax increment funds generated through urban renewal—to PHB's mission. The PHAC also plays a role in federal regulatory compliance. 

PHAC members are expected to have expertise in housing policy and planning, affordable housing financing and development, budget oversight and analysis, resource development to maintain and expand the supply and availability of affordable housing,  program development and evaluation, public-private partnership development, and community and intergovernmental relations.

To apply, click here for the application or find it posted here: Return the completed application to the Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI), who will forward your application to  PHB. Complete instructions are available on the form.
