Oregon Voucher Data from CBPP: 32K+ Vouchers, $195 Million Annually.

The Center for Budget and Policy Priorities recently posted annual national HUD housing voucher utilization data HERE

I downloaded Oregon data for the last several years and combined into an Excel workbook HERE and embedded below. 

Data includes counts of vouchers in use and $$ spent for vouchers; state, national, and PHA totals in Oregon are included.

  • Average annual per unit subsidy cost for Oregon vouchers in 2013 was $5,961, an 7% increase of since 2008. The national cost increase for the same period was 9.6%. The 14% reported increase for the Lincoln county PHA was the highest reported increase in Oregon.The three Portland metro PHA's in Oregon all reported annual voucher subsidy costs in excess of $7,000 in 2013. Annual voucher subsidy costs for Oregon in 2013 exceeded $195 million, up by $23 million since 2008.
  • The total number of vouchers in use in Oregon in 2013 was 32,749, an increase of 7.6 % from the 2004 number of vouchers in use. (30,431). That was the same rate of increase as the national rate of increase. The reported increase of vouchers in use for Jackson county of 35% was the highest reported increase in Oregon.
