Expanding Opportunities for Affordable Housing: A Forum & Resource Fair
January 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
This event, sponsored by Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO) and Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS), will present the results of three case studies funded by a grant from Metro.
The grant provided consulting services for design and financing work, provided by Bill Hart of Carleton Hart Architects and Sharon Nielson of the Nielson Group. Three organizations received their services:
> Muslim Community Center of Portland
> Bethel AME Economic Development Corporation (EDC)
> Trinity Lutheran Church
At this event, the consultants will present options they developed for these three organizations to potentially build affordable housing and community services on their properties. Representatives of the three organizations will also share their visions. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and to network with lenders, developers and city staff.
The event is free, but reservations are requested. Please RSVP using the form below.
