Fair Housing Month: In Multnomah County 6% of All Renters Had a HUD Voucher, With Substantial Variances by Race and Ethnicity.

Readers may recall a 2014 post HERE with information showing a breakout of Portland metro voucher holders by race and ethnicity. 

Focusing on only Multnomah County I went back and dug out current information from the ACS 2010-2014 HERE and the Home Forward Feb 2016 Dashboard report HERE. 

The results below show that 6% of all Multnomah county renter households had a voucher, but that percentage varies significantly by race and ethnicity, likely influenced by the variance in incomes by race and ethnicity.
