New Report: Equitable Foreclosure Recovery, Includes Portland, Seattle, and Minneapolis Metros.

Report from Northwest Area Foundation and PolicyLink is HERE and includes analysis of foreclosures in Minneapolis, Seattle, and Portland. (Portland detail starts on PDF page 16)

One excerpt, with related table pasted below: 
the Portland region, where poverty is generally less concentrated, exhibits the most equitable distribution of foreclosures: the share of people of color is only slightly higher in the highest foreclosure Zip codes than the share of people of color city-, county-, and region wide. Median incomes also are not extremely different. Foreclosures in Seattle and the Twin Cities are much more concentrated in lower-income communities and communities of color
