Metro's Supportive Housing Services program
Help guide Metro's implementation of the supportive housing services program by reviewing and commenting on the work plan.
Supportive housing services program
On May 19, 2020, voters in greater Portland approved a measure that would raise money for supportive housing services for people experiencing homelessness or at risk of experiencing homelessness. Community members and leaders from around the region developed the measure, recognizing that individuals and families need the right amount of support to find and stay in their homes. Metro’s new supportive housing services program will provide the much-needed wraparound services to help reduce homelessness across greater Portland.
The work plan provides a comprehensive plan for implementing the supportive housing services program, incorporating and supplementing guidelines adopted by the Metro Council and the recommendations of the stakeholder advisory table. It serves as the governing document for program implementation, addressing how Supportive Housing Services revenues will be administered to achieve the goals described in the ballot measure.
In reviewing the document, consider: Does the work plan effectively define the roles, responsibilities and administrative actions of the supportive housing services program?
