N/NE HOME REPAIR PROGRAMS
Since August, 10 longtime homeowners in N/NE Portland have received our home repair loans (up to $40,000 each); another 43 households each received $10,000 home repair grants. Approximately 70% of these 53 N/NE Portland households served are African American and have lived in their homes for more than 25 years.
We have requested $500,000 from the City budget to assist an additional 50 N/NE Portland households repair and retain their homes. We will find out in November if we received the extra funding.
