Home Forward

Welcome to Home Forward.  We are committed to providing our most vulnerable neighbors with access to affordable housing and services.

Conceived during the Great Depression and born at the start of World War II, Home Forward, then known as the Housing Authority of Portland, quickly became a national symbol of hope, creating housing for 72,000 people in our first two years of existence: more than any public agency in the country.  Since then, we have continued to lead and innovate in fostering economic stability and potential for our residents, as they move themselves forward into new homes and new lives.

When it comes to developing and renovating residential communities, Home Forward means business.

In our efforts to provide housing and support services, Home Forward frequently contracts work to our business community. We strive for a fair, efficient, and open bidding process.

All of our open bid opportunities are posted here and bid submissions are done here as well. If you have any questions about our Supplier Diversity Program, use our contact page to find the right person to ask. You also can review our current Economic Equity Policy.
