Description:
Coming out of a year of co-occurring crises, the 2021 Legislature rose to the challenge resulting in a historic investment of nearly $900 million in new resources for multi-family rental housing, homeless services and homeownership opportunities for low-income Oregonians. This plenary session of Legislative leaders and housing advocates will reflect on these significant wins, a few loses, and work left to tackle moving forward into future sessions. Affordable housing advocates, guided by the Housing Alliance, and Oregon Housing and Community Services, under the leadership of Governor Brown, both set bold agendas. Hear reflections on how these new resources and policies respond to the challenges we face brought on by the COVID pandemic and catastrophic wildfires while advancing long-term housing solutions that will chip away at ongoing systemic racial disparities we face.
