Rent Burden Community Forum

Grants Pass residents are invited to attend and participate in a community forum hosted by the City of Grants Pass at 6 p.m. on Monday, December 11, 2023, to learn about current issues related to housing production, rent burden, fair housing, and more.

Information will be shared on current housing statistics, causes and consequences of rent burden, barriers to reducing rent burden, and community resources. Feedback from this community discussion will be used to help guide City housing strategies and initiatives to address current rental housing challenges.

Grants Pass is identified by the Oregon Housing & Community Services Department as a city that is severely rent-burdened, with 28.6% of all renters paying more than half of their income on rent. Paying too much for housing often prevents households from paying for other necessary expenses, including medical care, food, utilities, education, transportation, childcare, and more. During this event, community members are encouraged to share experiences, ask questions, and provide input on potential solutions to ease the housing crisis.
