In May 2020, the Supportive Housing Services measure was passed by Metro voters. The measure will create new revenue streams from a one percent tax on incomes earned within Metro region above $200k / $125k (joint/single). It also creates a one percent business profits tax on net income of businesses with gross receipts of more than $5 million. Both taxes begin January 2021 and the funds are designated for Supportive Housing Services.
Clackamas County will receive 21.33% of the total revenues generated to provide Supportive Housing Services such as:
- rent assistance
- mental health
- addiction and recovery services
- employment assistance
- peers support
Clackamas County Supportive Housing and Services Local Steering Committee
The Supportive Housing and Services Steering Committee will work with Clackamas County staff to develop a Local Implementation Plan that outlines the funding priorities for Metro measure 26-210 for Clackamas County implementation. The plan they help to develop will be informed by robust community engagement and staff subject matter expertise input. The plan will align with the values and goals established by the Metro Stakeholder Advisory Table, including an emphasis on advancing racial equity.
