Notice of Changes to Inclusionary Housing

The Portland Housing Bureau (PHB) has revised the IH Program administrative rules for homeownership units based on a nationwide survey of IH Homeownership programs and best practices. These changes apply to IH Homeownership Units only (IH Units that are leased have separate program requirements and no changes to these administrative rules have been made). 

Throughout a 200-day public process, PHB held two public hearings and engaged development industry professionals from the for-profit and non-profit sectors to review and dialogue on the proposed changes. All comments received through public testimony were analyzed by PHB staff against policy and program goals and outcomes. The amended administrative rules can be found online at

PHB would like to thank everyone who participated in the public outreach process. If you have questions regarding the IH administrative rule changes or rulemaking process, please contact IH Rules Coordinator, Jessica Conner, at or by calling 503-823-4100.
