We invite you to participate in a survey to identify opportunities and challenges facing affordable housing developers in Oregon—and to share your ideas for solutions. The survey will inform both a series of workshops at the Housing Oregon conference September 28-29 and our strategic planning effort beginning this year.

Four random participants will each receive $50 Fred Meyer gift certificates!

Deadline to participate is Friday, September 16.

Workshops at Housing Oregon Conference, Sept. 28-29

You are invited to participate in a two-part interactive conference workshop at Housing Oregon’s Industry Support Conference on Wed-Thurs, Sept. 28-29. Participants will review survey results and identify solutions that increase and improve both rural-based and Portland metro-based affordable housing development opportunities.  Workshop participants’ recommended solutions and strategies will be shared with Housing Oregon’s Board, Policy Councils, members and industry partners to consider supporting and advocating for. Register here for the conference.

How survey results will be used

Workshop participants will identify barriers, challenges and opportunities to affordable housing development. Criteria will be created to select the most critical issues, review pre-conference survey results, and begin to prioritize potential issues and shape recommendations. Housing Oregon will use survey and workshop results to complete in-depth analysis, shape solutions, and develop our short and long-term strategic plans.
