OHCS Home /  Housing Choice Landlord Guarantee / Advisory Committee

 

Housing Choice Advisory Committee

The Housing Choice Advisory Committee is tasked with oversight of the implementation of HB 2639, which was passed by the 77th Oregon Legislature in 2013.

HB 2639 expands protections under Oregon State law to residents who receive local, state, or federal rent subsidies, including Section 8 or Housing Choice Vouchers. It changed the law to include local, state, or federal housing assistance as a protected source of income, which means that tenants cannot be denied residency solely based on their use of a voucher or other rental assistance to pay the rent. The bill also creates a Housing Choice Landlord Guarantee Fund to provide financial assistance to landlords to mitigate damages caused by tenants.

OHCS was charged with naming the Housing Choice Advisory Committee and with managing the Housing Choice Landlord Guarantee Fund. The Housing Choice Advisory Committee is made up of representatives of landlords, tenants, and public housing authorities.

The committee shall:

  • Advise the department with respect to matters of interest and concern regarding the Housing Choice Voucher Program;
  • Discuss and share best practices for maximizing participation by landlords and tenants in the Housing Choice Voucher Program; and
  • Develop strategies and outcome measures for gauging the effectiveness of the Housing Choice Voucher Program.
