A bill has been introduced in the Oregon House of Representatives that would stop a trend of very low income families getting kicked off their subsidized housing when they start making just a dollar more than the maximum allowed under subsidized housing programs.
Lawmakers say it’s unacceptable that a struggling family whose hard work gets them a pay raise that barely pushes them over the income level of eligibility, and then finds out that although they still can’t afford to pay regular market rents, they’re kicked out of subsidized housing. They’re back on the street.
