What does affordable housing mean to you?


As Metro considers how it will implement the affordable housing bond passed by voters last fall, it is important they hear what matters to you when it comes to affordable housing. Take a moment to let Metro know what successful affordable housing means to you and your community by taking the survey below.

The survey is also available in Spanish, simplified Chinese, and Vietnamese

The survey closes May 15th, and each completed survey is eligible to win four tickets to the Oregon Zoo! Please share widely through your networks.
