Pathway 1000 is a displacement mitigation initiative created by PCRI and informed through community outreach and feedback. In addition to mitigating displacement, the initiative Arika and Jenniferaims to reclaim the historic heart and soul of Portland’s African American community, building prosperity for African Americans and others displaced from North and Northeast Portland through the development of 1,000 new affordable homes during the next decade. This development will create hundreds of living-wage jobs, business growth and additional development opportunity throughout the duration of the 10-year initiative.

In addition to individuals and families interested in learning about homeownership opportunity, industry professionals are encouraged to attend to learn more about how their organization or business can participate in the initiative. Attorneys, architects, finance professionals, contractors and others are invited to join in the Pathway 1000 initiative.
