The Native American Housing to Homeownership Fair provides a wide range of housing and homeownership resources tailored to the Portland Metropolitan area's Native American community. The Fair is an equal housing opportunity event with a culturally specific focus – free and open to everyone. If you're interested in learning about housing opportunities and how to achieve your housing dreams, we welcome you and all of Portland to join us on Saturday July 25th from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Saturday, July 25th, 2009 at the NAYA Family Center, 5135 NE Columbia Blvd., Portland, OR 97218

The Native American Housing to Homeownership Fair is a key part of NAYA Family Center's initiative to close the Native American homeownership gap. Although homeownership rates in Portland are over 65%, only 25% of American Indian and Alaska Native community members own their own home. Since our inaugural Fair in 2006, our homeownership programming has resulted in over 40 new homeowners or refinances. It's important for members of Portland's Native community to know that buying a home is a goal that can be achieved by finding the right path and using the right resources.

This event is specifically designed to provide housing information for anyone – renters, prospective buyers, or current owners. The workshops and information available will help each person identify their individual path to housing stability. The Fair provides information about what it takes to buy and keep a home and features organizations and programs that support homeowners to achieve their goals. Highlights include:

$2,500 Down Payment Assistance Raffle

$400 Rent Assistance Raffle

Workshops on renting, first time home buying, foreclosure prevention and financial programs

Staff from banks, Real Estate Agents, homeownership non-profits, affordable housing providers, and Tribal Housing Authorities, including the HUD Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee program

Community resources and programs

Free lunch, a kid's corner, a performance by the NAYA Family Center Dancers, and raffle for prizes

Please join us on Saturday, July 25th at the NAYA Family Center, 5135 NE Columbia Blvd., Portland OR, 97218, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. NAYA Family Center has provided services to the Portland Metropolitan Area's Native American community for over 34 years. Learn more at www.nayapdx.org. This event is sponsored by the Portland Development Commission, Sterling Savings Bank, Bank of America, Guild Mortgage, Cascade Residential Mortgage and over 20 community organizations.
