Seeking Proposals for Homeownership Asset Preservation Pilot

PHB is issuing a Request for Proposals for a Homeownership Asset Preservation Pilot Program and intends to contract with a non-profit organization to administer homeownership asset preservation services targeting low-to-moderate income homeowners of color in the Interstate Corridor Urban Renewal Area or the N/NE Study Area who have owned their homes for 20+ years.

As part of PHB’s N/NE Neighborhood Housing Strategy, this pilot responds to a stated community need for services that address challenges related to intergenerational property transfers and complicated real estate titles that affect the ability of low-to-moderate-income homeowners in North and Northeast Portland to remain in their homes and pass on assets to future generations. Through this pilot, PHB seeks to fill gaps in these services identified through community outreach and engagement.

This is one-time funding for a pilot program from November 2019 – June 2021 (further program funding will be based on an evaluation of the pilot). To learn more about this opportunity, please read the full RFP here.

Proposals Due: Monday, September 23, 2019 by 3:00 PM
