Auditor's report emphasizes need for stable housing funding

May 24, 2012

Yesterday, City Auditor LaVonne Griffin-Valade released an audit of the Portland Housing Bureau (PHB), "Bureau acting on risks, though more remains to be done."

The audit acknowledges and affirms the hard work we’ve undertaken to build the new bureau, and identifies a number of risks facing the bureau.

We wholeheartedly agree with the Auditor’s recommendation that we identify a sustainable, dedicated source of funding to support the bureau’s work.

Going forward, this audit will help guide our work to strengthen the foundation of the bureau’s new house. Thanks to the Auditor and her team for their collaborative, thoughtful approach.
