    When Meyer’s current five-year Affordable Housing Initiative (AHI) launched in 2014, it felt audacious. We worked with the field to craft a refreshed framework of strategies, aimed towards innovation, systems change and the leveraging of resources.  With two dedicated and experienced program officers leading the initiative, we set out to change how Meyer advanced its affordable housing work. And the equity focus that is now central to Meyer’s work was, in several key ways, first tested through AHI’s work over the last two years.

    Now it’s time to take stock of our progress to date. Kristina Smock Consulting recently completed an assessment of the first full year of AHI’s refreshed grantmaking.

    One of the bills signed by Governor Brown prohibits landlords from raising rent for the first year of a month-to-month lease. A second bill requires landlords to give renters 90 days notice before raising rent for tenants who have lived in a home more than a year. The bills also include a stipulation that cities and counties make developers include low income housing in rental and home sale projects.

    Brown says the bills are a start but more needs to be done to address affordable housing in Oregon.

    “We need to build more affordable housing,” Brown told KOIN 6 News. “Partnership, collaboration, we have more federal money coming in, we need to partner with private sector and partner with our local folks at the county and city level.”

    Read what Oregon ON Voting Member Val Valfre of Washington County of Department of Housing Services has to say about the bill.
