The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) defines a low-income household eligible for assisted housing as a household whose income is less than 81 percent of the regional area median family income. For Multnomah County, the 1980 median family income was $23,438; up 30.8% from 1977. The 1980 state of Oregon median family income was $21,066. County statistics indicate that there is a need to assure the availability of low-cost housing throughout the county. Maywood Park will contribute to satisfying the housing need by maintaining the quality of housing stock. Through the "turnover process" the housing situation of low-income households is improved.
