Join the Cully Housing Action Team to learn more about how to take action for the Yes for Affordable Homes bond measure 26-179 that will be on the ballot in November!
Portland has an affordable housing crisis Skyrocketing rents. Families losing their homes. Seniors on fixed incomes forced out of the neighborhoods they’ve lived in all their lives. People experiencing homelessness have nowhere to turn except our streets. We are all touched by Portland’s affordable housing crisis. In the last 15 years, housing costs for Portland renters have increased by 30% while income for renters has fallen by 7%. In 2015, the average monthly rent for new rental housing was $1,954. Portland has a shortage of about 24,000 affordable homes and apartments for families and seniors making less than $37,000 per year.
As a community, we must act. And we can. Voting Yes on Measure 26-179- Portland’s Affordable Housing Bond- will create at least 1,300 new, urgently needed affordable apartments, providing homes for 2,900 of the most vulnerable low income people in our city.
Childcare, Dinner and Interpretation will be provided!
