Here are some questions people often ask when they live at one of our properties or are interested in living at one.

If you would like to add someone to your lease, please contact your property manager. They will help you get started with the process.
If your income changes, let your property manager know immediately. The manager will calculate the change in your rent. You must notify your property manager by the 15th of the month for the change to be effective on your next month’s rent.
If you are having problems with one of your neighbors, please share your concerns with your property manager to determine the appropriate next steps, and to get advice on available resources to help resolve the situation.
Your Property Manager can give you forms and explain the process to make household changes. Some common forms are also available at Home Forward’s Forms Library.

As some of you may have heard, on August 20th 2023 the Portland Water Bureau’s regular testing of water quality detected small amounts of the bacteria Cryptosporidium. Since learning of this, Home Forward staff has been in contact with the Portland Water Bureau.
We have been assured that healthy individuals can and should continue using water as normal.
If you are immunocompromised or are taking an immunosuppressive drug, you can kill any potential cryptosporidium bacteria by boiling your water for 1 minute before consuming.
