“Preservation properties provide housing for some of the most vulnerable populations in the state. With average incomes around $800 per month, these families and seniors have few other housing options.”
— Martha McLennan, Executive Director of Northwest Housing Alternatives

Welcome to Preserve Oregon Housing

sub

Here you will find resources and a database, generous partners and expert teams, all dedicated to ensure that vulnerable Oregonians, at-risk of losing their homes, are able to remain in stable and affordable housing.

Our goal is to preserve 6,000 subsidized housing units in Oregon by 2015.

The Oregon Housing Preservation Project exists to preserve expiring federal rent subsidies that make possible affordable housing for low-income families and individuals. The non-renewal of these subsidies could lead to dramatic rent increases or condo conversions, and threaten the welfare of Oregonians dependent on affordable housing.

Our primary purpose is to provide technical expertise and short-term loans to buyers and owners during the renovation, sale or purchase of at-risk properties.

We hope you make good use of the backing accessible to you, as result of the extraordinary cooperation of housing experts and banks, foundations and nonprofits, local and state agencies.
