Portland To Decide How To Spend $250M For Affordable Housing


The Portland City Council is scheduled to vote Wednesday on how it will spend more than $250 million set aside for affordable housing.

The City Council’s plan will lay out how to spend voter-approved bond money to address the ongoing housing crunch.

The city has already used some of the money to buy an apartment complex, the 263-unit Ellington Apartments in Northeast Portland.

The plan will call for at least 1,300 new affordable housing units citywide.

It will focus on housing families, immigrants and refugees. It will also serve communities of color and people experiencing or at imminent risk of becoming homeless.
