Housing

Northwest Pilot Project’s core work is to assist low-income seniors 55 years and older, who live in Multnomah County and are capable of independent living , in obtaining and maintaining permanent affordable rental housing. In today’s housing market in Portland, our work is more critical than ever.

Navigating access to and then securing housing that’s within the budget of very low-income seniors is very challenging. This is our area of expertise.

Advocacy

NWPP advocates increasing the supply, affordability and accessibility of housing. We advocate with government entities including the City of Portland, Multnomah County, the State of Oregon, and the federal government. We also direct our advocacy at housing authorities, for-profit and non-profit building owners/property managers, and the media. Our goal is to ensure every low-income senior in Multnomah County has a decent, affordable place to live. Since there are not enough available apartments to meet the housing needs of low income seniors and construction of units is not keeping pace, we advocate increasing the supply, affordability and accessibility of housing.
