Oregon Lays Out Cash To Build More Homes

Public Domain

Oregon needs more homes... lots of them.  By one measurement, Medford alone could use more than 4,000 new rental units to make housing more affordable for more people. 

The state of Oregon is acting.  The department of Housing and Community Services just awarded nearly $53 Million to build hundreds of housing units in other parts of the state. 

Margaret Salazar runs OHCS.  She joins us to talk about this and other programs in the pipeline to create more homes for Oregonians.
