Affordable Housing Online is monitoring the federal government's response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. As of March 13, 2020, Public Housing Agencies across the nation are closing their doors to the public. Most offices are still running and will communicate by phone, email, or mail. Some offices have drop boxes installed outside, so documents can still be hand-delivered. Visit the housing authority's website for the latest on its current operations, if one is available. If there is no information online, contact the housing authority directly. Due to a high volume of calls and modified office hours in most areas, expect a long wait time (days or weeks) for a response. To find your local PHA's contact info, browse by state here.

Humboldt Gardens

5025 N Vancouver Ave, Portland, Oregon 97217

Humboldt Gardens is a groundbreaking green community of townhomes, flats, and apartments built around a central pocket park.

Developed to replace the badly aging and inaccessible Iris Court apartment complex off Vancouver Avenue in North Portland, Humboldt Gardens is Portland’s second redevelopment effort anchored by a federal HOPE VI grant. Designed from the ground up with input from the entire community, the site incorporates a high number of green features such as low-flow showers and toilets, storm water swales, and Energy Star appliances.
