High housing costs and skyrocketing rental rates mean thousands of Oregonians have no home or are on the verge of homelessness every day. Housing advocates are calling on the Governor and lawmakers to invest $100 million in affordable housing projects across the state. Michael Anderson with the Housing Alliance says Oregonians shouldn't be going without housing.

"With the federal disinvestment in affordable housing, our state needs to step up and invest money into the foundation of Oregon's future, which is everyone having a home."

Anderson notes too many Oregon seniors, people with disabilities and working families are unable to reach even part of the American Dream.

"It's part of the basic American compact, and in Oregon we have an opportunity to make it a reality and match up people's hard work with what they've earned, which is a stable place to call home."

A recent report from the Western Regional Advocacy Project claims cuts in federal housing programs have led to a big jump in homelessness; Anderson says Oregon needs to step up and solve the problem.
