Attorney David Davenport has been invited by the Network for Oregon Affordable Housing (NOAH) to address the Oregon Housing Preservation Project Steering Committee at their meeting on January 11, 2021, regarding the Right of First Refusal and Year-15 disputes. David will participate along with Ellen Lurie Hoffman of the National Housing Trust.

NOAH coordinates the Oregon Housing Preservation Project (OHPP) which is a statewide collaboration of public and private stakeholders dedicated to preserving Oregon’s at-risk, federally assisted housing. Many of these properties have expiring contracts for federal rent subsidies that are at risk of non-renewal and would result in the loss of housing affordable to the Oregonians with the lowest incomes. David and Ellen will educate the committee about Year 15 threats and what they can do to mitigate the risks to properties, residents and communities.
