NCRC, PCRI, Others Convene Oregon Reinvestment Summit

July 13, 2017 · Featured, PCRI

Oregon’s growing economy and quality of life are attracting more and more new residents every year. However, rising housing costs in cities and rural areas are making it increasingly difficult to live here. Cities like Portland are experiencing problematic impacts from gentrification and displacement, while many parts of rural Oregon are facing a deteriorating and insufficient housing stock. Across the state, communities struggle to create an environment where small businesses can thrive.
