ICYMI, wonderful news for housing opportunity from Central Oregon with 40 more quality, affordable rental homes coming soon via our member Housing Works: "With [Bend's] vacancy rates below 1 percent and rents rising, the need for affordable housing is greater than ever...Eastlake Village II will provide a home where individuals and families with low incomes can thrive."
We are thrilled to hear that USDA gave NeighborWorks Umpqua a $416K Self-Help technical assistance grant to help low-income homeowners complete their own home repair projects! The grant will allow NW Umpqua to leverage other grants and investments to rehabilitate 47 homes throughout Douglas, Coos and Curry Counties over the next two years, preserving affordable housing stock and improving peoples' health and lives.
Congratulations to new homeowners Niecy and little Kaliyah, and to Proud Ground, Portland Housing Center, Portland Housing Bureau, Wells Fargo, Community Frameworks, and the African American Alliance for Homeownership for adding one more home to the region's growing supply of permanently affordable homes!
ONE WEEK LEFT......What's it take to plan a Gala? A ginormous cup o' joe! Get your Gala table while it's still $850 (by July 15)! http://oregonon.org/get_involved/annual-awards-gala-september-29-2014/
