The City of Portland is seeking a Director to lead the Housing Bureau.


This position is exempt from Civil Service and is an “At Will” position. It serves at the discretion of the hiring authority, subject to the City of Portland Human Resources Administrative Rules and the Portland City Charter and Code.



The mission of the Portland Housing Bureau (PHB) is to solve the unmet housing needs of the people of Portland. PHB is responsible for leading housing policy for the City of Portland and administering programs to produce affordable rental housing, increase and stabilize homeowners, prevent, and end homelessness, and regulate and assist landlords and tenants in the rental housing market. We are guided in our work by a vision that all Portlanders should have equitable access to affordable housing and to the opportunities that a safe, stable home can deliver.


The Housing Director reports directly to the Commissioner in Charge, which currently is Commissioner Carmen Rubio. However, the voters of Portland supported a change in the city’s form of government, which means that come January 2025, this position will report to the City Administrator along with all bureau directors.
