Home Forward Voucher Tenant Demographics by Area, January 2015.

The February Home Forward Board Packet provides a racial and ethnic breakout of voucher holders by area, including Portland neighborhoods AND Clackamas County and Lake Oswego and West Linn. 

I created an Excel spreadsheet HERE and embedded below that shows that detail.  

Some observations:

  1. Of the total of 8,464 HF voucher holders 2,276/28.1% were in Outer SE and 111/1.3% of HF voucher holders were in Clackamas County or West Linn/Lake Oswego.
  2. The total of 2,621 Black voucher households represented 31% of all Home Forward voucher holders. In North Portland and St. Johns 404 Black voucher holders represented 49.1% of HF voucher holders, but only 12/11.8% of 102 total HF voucher holders in Clackamas and 1/11.1% of 9 HF voucher holders in Lake Oswego and West Linn.
  3. The 579 total Hispanic voucher households represented 6.8% of all HF voucher holders. Of the 111 total HF voucher holders in Clackamas County and West Linn/Lake Oswego there were 8 Hispanic voucher holders, or 7.2% of HF voucher holders in those areas.
  4. Note that Clackamas County Housing authority controlled HUD vouchers are not included in Home Forward totals. HUD's Resident Characteristic Report show that 5% of Clackamas County Authority voucher holders are Black, and 7% are Hispanic.
