Mayors draft $123.5M plan to combat homelessness

The Oregon Homeless Task Force met recently to discuss a plan aimed at reducing the state's homeless population. 

This task force is made up of 25 mayors from across the state with the mission to solve the homelessness crisis specific to each city and its needs. 

They met regularly over the summer to draft a policy plan, urging the state to provide direct allocations to each city in Oregon, totaling $123,575,800 each year. The task force shared its plan with legislators and gubernatorial candidates.
