Housing Oregon is a statewide association of mission-driven nonprofits. Our members have decades of expertise and a commitment to housing vulnerable Oregonians — including families, seniors and people with disabilities — whom the market does not serve. Our members provide housing and services across the continuum, from homelessness, to rental housing to homeownership. As partners in the Housing Alliance, we support a comprehensive 2017 agenda for housing, including:

  • HB 3357, which increases the Document Recording Fee by $20.
  • HB 2852, which extends and increases the Oregon Affordable Housing Tax Credit.
  • SB 5505, which authorizes $100 million in LIFT bond funding.
  • HB 2912, which creates a new land acquisition program.
  • SB 1, which addressed agricultural workforce housing through an operations tax credit.
  • Other efforts to preserve existing affordable housing.
  • HB 2004, which would create a “just cause” eviction standard and lift the ban on rent stabilization.
  • HB 3192, which establishes a down payment assistance program.
  • HB 2961, which helps low-income homeowners with home repairs.
  • HB 2570, which establishes a revolving loan fund for new home purchases.
  • A set-aside of $20 million of LIFT bonds for homeownership.
  • Other foreclosure counseling programs.

While the relevant legislation —HB 2006— is not moving this session, we will continue to spotlight the need for reform of Oregon’s largest housing subsidy.
