The title of Oregon's new five-year housing plan is aspirational: "Breaking New Ground." The report is part of a state effort to spur the building of new housing, with an emphasis on housing affordable to people who do not make much money.
The report shows more than a quarter of Oregon's low-income residents spend more than half their pay on rent. The report comes from OHCS, the Oregon Department of Housing and Community Services.
Kenny LaPoint from OHCS staff joins us to add details.
