Fair Housing Update - January 16, 2013

The Portland Housing Bureau is proud to work with mission-driven community partners to remove barriers to housing choice in our community.

 

This year, we will work with the legislature to enact Section 8 reform, contract for a new round of Fair Housing testing, and continue to help our veterans utilize their VASH vouchers.

 

Our work was recently highlighted by The Oregonian:

 

City to test anew for housing bias
