In November 2016, Portland voters passed a historic general obligation bond of $258.4 million to increase affordable housing in our community.
To ensure bond investments create housing opportunity for those most in need, and reflect our shared values of advancing racial equity and promoting community benefits, the Portland Housing Bureau convened a Stakeholder Advisory Group to guide the development of a policy framework for the use of bond funds.
The Draft Policy Framework for the Affordable Housing Bond is now available for review. The public is invited to read and comment on the plan here between now and September 23, 2017.
Interested parties can share their feedback by completing the Community Survey here (online and print version are available in English and Spanish). Find a schedule of public meetings here for opportunities to discuss the plan with other community members and provide feedback.
