Free forums to help potential new home owners in East Portland

Rose Community Development will host a free forum next month to present to potential home buyers accurate and relevant information about homeownership opportunities specifically in East Portland.

The first forum, conducted in the Lents neighborhood last fall, yielded three finalists for the downpayment assistance grant drawing.

The next forum will be at David Douglas High School on Wednesday, February 15, from 6 to 8:30 pm. A third forum is scheduled for April.

The forums are open to the public, and is considered an equal housing opportunity. We have heard positive feedback from our community of potential homebuyers, realtors, and lenders alike for these events and are prepared to bring another round of education and resources to our second installment of the forums.

Exhibitors are also being invited to participate in both the February and April forums. Fees range from $100 to  $200 with some complimentary tables for cultural programs and neighborhood associations. Space is limited; tables will be allocated on a first-to-register basis.

For more information, email or call 503-788-8052 extension 14.
