POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Help shape our community's housing goals - April 3, 2012

The City of Portland, City of Gresham, and Multnomah County partner each year to develop a one-year Action Plan for spending federal funds that help address the housing needs in our community. 

 

The funds come from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and support the 5-year spending priorities and housing strategies identified in the 2011-2016 Consolidated Plan

 

Funds help us provide affordable housing options, support our work to end homelessness, and provide housing options for community members with special needs.

 

Let your voice be heard!

 

Join us at an upcoming public hearing to share your priorities for spending these funds.
