When the Metro Council referred the regional affordable housing bond to voters, it also adopted a framework developed through months of engagement with partners and community members to guide the bond’s implementation.
The regional affordable housing bond framework includes these core values:
- Lead with racial equity to ensure access to affordable housing opportunities for historically marginalized communities.
- Prioritize people least well-served by the market.
- Create opportunity throughout the region by increasing access to transportation, jobs, schools, and parks, and prevent displacement in changing neighborhoods.
- Ensure long-term benefits and good use of public dollars with fiscally sound investments and transparent community oversight.

In 2019, Metro and its housing provider partners are working with communities to create local strategies to address housing needs and identify opportunities to create affordable homes. Metro invites you to participate in these processes to help determine how the housing bond will serve your community.
