MACG has Housing Research Action Teams in Multnomah and Clackamas counties researching and acting on creative solutions to the region’s housing crisis.  

The teams both work on leadership development and engagement so they are ready to respond to local advocacy needs as they arise, and continue to do research actions to discover new ways to make a concrete difference on this critical issue.  

Focuses currently include state-level tenant protections, countering NIMBYism, and Safe Overnight Shelter outreach and technical assistance.
