(Salem, OR) — Governor Kate Brown today announced the launch of Oregon’s five-year statewide housing plan to tackle homelessness and housing instability issues statewide. The six-point plan was drafted by Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS) with substantive community and partner agency input.

“It will take all of us working together to prevent people from slipping into homelessness, to get people quickly off the street, and to help all Oregonians access stable homes,” said Governor Brown. “This is an ambitious and historic statewide housing plan that will guide our state’s housing investments for years to come, and will set a trajectory that will endure even longer. It will take an equally ambitious and historic investment from the Legislature to ensure that every Oregonian, in communities large and small, has access to housing choices that allow them and their families to thrive.”

“We are embarking on a new era for OHCS. An era in which we will be conducting business differently,” said Margaret Salazar, director of Oregon Housing and Community Services. “You will see us be proactive, flexible and intentional, and we will step up to provide the leadership Oregon needs to deliver this work. We will not be able to do it without strong partnerships and the support of Oregon communities.”
