Consider This: Why Does Housing Cost So Much?

June 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Housing in Oregon is expensive. Our minimum wage is among the highest in the country, and yet, according to a study by the National Low Income Housing Coalition, there isn’t a single community in Oregon where a person earning minimum wage can afford a two-bedroom apartment. Why are rents and home prices so high, and what can we do about the situation? On June 3, join us for a conversation with people who are working in different ways on making housing more affordable for Oregonians.
