Our communities have faced the brunt of a $50 million catastrophe (and mounting) due to the January 13, 2024, ice storm, highlighting the fragility of our housing infrastructure. Over 100 residents were displaced, seeking refuge in hotels or alternative housing, while our dedicated staff clocked in exhaustive hours, incurring significant additional expenses.
The specter of rent arrears looms large, threatening the stability of our residents and the viability of affordable housing. Without your input, the risk of evictions and the ensuing cycle of homelessness and instability could escalate, undermining our collective mission.
Moreover, the LIFT program—a cornerstone for homeownership and affordable rental housing—we are trying to understand which of our members utilize this tool, and which members do not, and to help identify and understand the barriers our members have to using this important funding resource.

As insurance rates continue to climb, the economic feasibility of developing and maintaining affordable housing is under siege. Together, with the Housing Authorities of Oregon, we are exploring solutions, but your experiences and insights are invaluable to crafting a path forward.
