Well this is good news for the homeless in Portland, Oregon! The government has approved a new pilot program called “A Place For You” that will allow willing participants to house homeless people in tiny modular units paid for by the government and charitable donations.

The Portland Press Herald reported:

Under the pilot program taking effect this summer, the homeowners will take over the heated, fully plumbed tiny houses in five years and can use them for rental income…Residents just passed a $260 million housing bond, but it will be two years before those units are ready, said Mary Li, director of Multnomah County’s new Idea Lab, which developed the concept.

The best part? About 200 homeowners have already signed up to get more information about the project because they are eager to help the homeless in a tangible way. Read the rest of the story here.
