OREGON Opportunity Network advocates for housing resources and policy
AT THE LOCAL, COUNTY, STATE, REGIONAL, AND FEDERAL LEVELS
Oregon ON convenes a State Policy Council and a Portland Policy Council with our members to discuss and learn about policy issues, develop advocacy positions, share information and to connect with our key governmental partners, including the City of Portland, Metro Regional Government, and Oregon Housing and Community Services.
