Gov-Brown

Above: Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln County’s Executive Director Sally Bovett (and Habitat for Humanity of Oregon Board member) and the state advocacy committee working on legislation to help promote affordable housing at the Salem Capitol. House Bill 4064, sponsored by Rep. Brad Witt, would set up an asset leveraging revolving loan fund for the State of Oregon. Eight other states are already doing this, and maximizing their ability to build affordable housing.
