Analysis of Integrated HIV Housing and Care Services. 3. Portland Housing Bureau: Springboard to Stability, Self-Sufficiency and Health Program


A department in Portland, Oregon’s municipal government, PHB manages a number of affordable housing development and assistance resources, including CoC funds, an Emergency Solutions grant, the city’s HOPWA formula grant, a Community Development Block Grant, HOME, and other state and local housing-related resources. To better serve its low-income and homeless residents, PBH and the Housing Authority of Portland (known as Home Forward) combined several emergency and short-term housing assistance programs into one pooled fund to provide a continuum of eviction prevention, rapid re-housing, and housing retention services for PLWHA and others who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. PHB was awarded $1,365,900 for its S4H Project. The S4H project builds upon a successful collaboration with Worksystems, a Portland-based nonprofit organization that designs and coordinates workforce development programs. In addition to providing housing assistance and linkages to health care and other supports, the S4H project will expand and adapt the Worksystems model for PLWHA. The project also builds on other long-standing, collaborative relationships between public housing, HOPWA, Ryan White Program Part A and B grantees, workforce providers, and state and local planning groups.
