On February 19, 2016, the Bureau of Development Services hosted a Lunch and Learn with The Portland Housing Bureau (PHB) on affordable housing programs for new developments in Portland. A record number of people turned out to hear about programs administered through PHB to encourage private developers to include affordable units and other public benefits in their projects.
Don’t worry if you missed the session – BDS has the PowerPoint presentation available on its website along with a video of the presentation. Get more information about resource availability by visiting the PHB website, or by calling PHB at 503-823-2375.
Watch the BDS Lunch and Learn website for announcements of upcoming presentations.
This mixed-use project is being developed by Marathon Acquisition & Development in the Mississippi neighborhood of N Portland and will make 20% of the housing units affordable by utilizing Portland Housing Bureau’s MULTE Program.
