Introducing Affordable Afternoons with Adam, a lecture series where landlord’s rights attorney Adam Mentzer takes on the issues commonly faced by affordable housing providers.

In this session of Affordable Afternoons with Adam, Adam will cover the ins and outs of increasing rents of Oregon affordable and subsidized tenants. Special attention will be paid to the rent increase process for Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher tenants, Oregon’s rent increase cap exemption, Portland’s relocation assistance exemption, and Oregon Housing and Community Services’ updated rent increase request and approval process that applies to certain LIHTC, HOME, and other OHCS funded properties.
