AMPP’s impact in Oregon
With 21 organizational graduates, AMPP has impacted more than a third of all units owned by Oregon nonprofits and housing authorities.

Our capacity-building programs give organizations tools and knowledge to manage affordable housing properties for long-term performance. Through group trainings and individualized mentoring, participants learn new skills and strategies in areas such as asset management, capital planning and portfolio sustainability planning.

Sessions usually run from nine to 18 months. Participants apply coursework to real property issues, making significant improvements to the health of their organizations’ portfolios by the end of a session.

"Our portfolio is growing and aging, and asset management is more important than ever. The in-depth assistance from AMPP is critical to the success of our organization. AMPP has been the single biggest capacity-building effort in my 14 years at WNHS."
