We're thrilled to announce that in the month since the Portland City Council referred an affordable housing bond measure to the November ballot — and the Yes for Affordable Homes campaign officially launched — 54 organizations and businesses have endorsed the measure!
From the Yes for Affordable Homes website:
Working parents and seniors should be able to afford housing, and still have enough money for groceries and necessities – but our community’s skyrocketing rents are making that impossible for too many. Portland has a shortage of about 24,000 affordable homes and apartments for families and seniors making less than $37,000 per year.
On November 8, Portland voters will have a chance to vote YES for affordable housing, by approving a historic bond measure. This bond funding would help fill the affordable housing gap, creating safe, affordable housing for thousands of people who live and work in our communities.
Yes to Affordable Homes is a broad coalition of individuals and organizations working to support the affordable housing bond measure, and make Portland a place everyone can afford to call home
