Getting it done: 11 x 13

August 15, 2013

Yesterday, City Council celebrated the completion of our 11 x 13 initiative.

In 2008, the Portland Housing Bureau launched the 11x13 campaign when we identified 11 buildings that were at risk of losing their federal subsidies by the end of 2013.

With our partners, we proudly report that 11 x 13 has been a success. We preserved the affordability of all 11 buildings -- home to more than 700 low-income older adults and people with disabilities.

Learn more about the 11 x 13 intiative, the buildings we preserved, and the people who call them home.

Listen to some of the residents share their stories on the Portland Housing Bureau YouTube channel.
