The Portland Policy Council offers an easy way for Housing Oregon Voting Members to discuss and advocate for housing policies and funding specifically affecting the Portland area. These monthly meetings feature experts in affordable housing and community development, policy discussions, and peer learning. Phone and video conferencing available if you can’t attend in person.

Key focus areas and Council activities include:


  • The City of Portland’s Residential Infill Project
  • The City of Portland’s 2015 Comprehensive Plan
  • Advocating for housing resources and policy on behalf of our members and as part of Portland-centric coalitions, including the Welcome Home Coalition and Anti-Displacement PDX.
  • Convening Portland Public Forums, an ongoing series that covers a wide range of topics of interest to our members.
