Welcome to Up for Growth
Up for Growth launches Housing Policy & Affordability Calculator in Portland, Oregon
A dynamic tool to facilitate local and national conversations around housing policy.
Up for Growth improves the quality of life for working families and individuals and creates communities that are accessible and affordable for all by promoting more housing close to jobs, efficient transportation, and in high opportunity neighborhoods.
Discriminatory housing policies like redlining, exclusionary zoning, and intentional and severe infrastructure neglect in black neighborhoods have been systematically employed at every level of government for decades.
As the federal government considers sweeping legislation to respond to the COVID-19 crisis, Up for Growth Action is working to ensure that housing priorities are included in the bills.
For decades, federal policies effectively mandated where minorities could live, almost always relegating them to the neighborhoods least accessible to the kinds of jobs, services, and amenities necessary to create upward mobility.
