Metro is committed to using public resources in ways that equitably benefit all community members, and to transparently report on the use of these resources. In Metro’s housing programs, accountability means independent and transparent oversight, regular audits and publicly available information on progress toward stated goals and outcomes.
Supportive Housing Services Regional Oversight Committee
The Supportive Housing Services Regional Oversight Committee is made of volunteers who provide independent and transparent oversight of the program. The committee includes community members with diverse personal and professional experience and expertise, including people with experiences of housing instability and homelessness. The committee helps make sure the program is fulfilling its goals, and makes annual reports and presentations to the Metro Council and the boards of commissioners of Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties regarding the program’s challenges, successes and outcomes. The committee meets at least every three months through the life of the program.
