Meyer sets lofty housing target: the “1 Million Months Challenge”
How would you create 1,000,000 months of affordable housing for the lowest possible public subsidy?
Meyer believes that decent, safe and affordable housing is the foundation for personal stability, thriving families and strong communities. Our Affordable Housing Initiative invites proposals that will increase low-income renters’ access to and retention of quality private market housing units in communities of their choice.
This partnership between The Collins Foundation, MRG Foundation, The Oregon Community Foundation, Pride Foundation and Meyer creates a coordinated and collaborative funding approach to address issues of immigration and refugees in the state, and to support local organizations responding to these issues.

At Meyer, we believe diversity and inclusion are the pathways to equity. We remain deeply committed to the equity journey we began a few years back. This video offers a glimpse at where we are today, in 2018.
Our narrator is Khiarica Rasheed, a poet and graduate from Portland's Grant High School, who lent her voice to our vision.
