The Portland Community Land Trust (PCLT) is a newly formed nonprofit organization implementing a community-based model for providing affordable housing in the city of Portland, Oregon. In the initial research for this project it became evident that the PCLT needed an outreach strategy in order to become a successful community-based organization. Students enrolled in the 1999-2000 Master's of Urban and Regional Planning Workshop at Portland State University spend six months developing the following outreach strategy under the direction of the PCLT Interim Board.

In the process of community research and analysis, the most substantial discoveries made were in the nature of the process of outreach itself, the significance and meaning of community organizing, and the implications these issues have had on developing this document. Communicating this learning process and emphasizing the importance of maintaining a constantly evolving outreach strategy for the PCLT are the primary goals of this report.
