Grace Peck Terrace Renovation Project

This project preserves 95 units of affordable housing in Portland’s Irvington Neighborhood.

Grace Peck Terrace was built in 1980.  In recent years, its exterior envelope exhibited moisture penetration issues.  A project to address these issues started, then expanded to address building system and interior needs. Work began in May 2023.  Zones of residents are relocating as the work progresses around the building.  Work is scheduled for completion in July of 2024.  Apartments will remain affordable to households earning less than 60% of Area Media Income (AMI).


Grace Peck Terrace consists of 95 one-bedroom units receiving project-based rent assistance from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for households with incomes less than 60% AMI.

Attention residents

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.

  • If you are boiling the water to drink, let the water cool.
  • Iodine and Chlorine do not kill this bacteria, and to treat for potential bacteria you should boil the water.
  • If you have questions please reach out to your property manager or resident services coordinator.

Please visit the Center for Disease Control website to get additional information.
