Lunch Plenary: Affordable Housing in Oregon: Charting a Path Forward After the 2023 Legislative Session

Room: Lloyd Center Ballroom
Tracks: Policy and Advocacy

Join us for a plenary session on the momentous 2023 legislative session. Panelists will explore the significant legislative wins achieved and the ongoing unfinished business that continues to shape the state’s housing agenda.
Governor Tina Kotek has placed a pronounced emphasis on addressing housing and homelessness, and we will closely examine the Governor’s initiatives and vision for the state’s housing landscape.

An essential aspect of the session will be a thorough assessment of the budget allocated to housing and the ensuing implications. Our panelists will analyze the significant budgetary wins that will bolster affordable housing efforts and investigate areas where additional funding is needed to overcome persistent housing challenges.
The 2023 legislative session witnessed its share of challenges, most notably the Republican walk-out. We will consider how the disruption influenced housing policy debates and explore ways in which stakeholders can navigate complex political terrain to advance housing priorities in future sessions.

Matthew Tschabold, Senior Housing Policy Advisor, Office of Gov. Tina Kotek
Nicole Stingh, Assistant Director of Government Relations, Oregon Housing and Community Services
