Home Forward (fka Housing Authority of Portland) has initiatied a number of programs designed to: (1) encourge landlords in high opportunity areas to accept Home Forward Section 8 voucher clients; (2) raise payment standards in certain areas of the county in order to make it more feasible for a Section 8 client to access higher priced neighborhoods; (3) explore erasure of jurisdictional boundaries through a pilot program with the Housing Authority of Clackamas County which will allow voucher holders from either jurisdiction to move into the other's county while retaining the voucher issued by the originating Authority, thus affording clients greater choice in housing locations.
