Rejected Application Appeal Process

If an application has been denied and the applicant feels they qualify, they should write to the main office, attention to the Asset Manager of which they were denied:

Loulie Brown, PhD
Asset Manager
Sabin Community Development Corporation
1488 NE Alberta St
Portland, OR 97211

In the letter, the applicant should explain the reason(s) they believe their application should have been approved and attach all viable documentation that would support their request for an appeal. Within five (5) working days of receipt of their letter, the application file will be reviewed and the applicant will be notified of the review outcome.

Any meeting with the applicant or subsequent review of the applicant’s written request must be conducted by a Sabin CDC staff member who did not make the initial decision to reject the applicant.

If an applicant believes they have been unjustifiably rejected for tenancy or discriminated against due to a handicap or disability, they have the right to state their concerns in writing to:

Mary Schoen-Clark
Executive Director
Sabin Community Development Corporation
1488 NE Alberta St
Portland, OR 97211

Applicants or tenants should explain the situation and the reason they believe they have been discriminated against. Within 5 working days of receipt of their letter or meeting, the Executive Director will review the facts and notify the applicant/tenant of their decision.

If the applicant disagrees with the Executive Director’s decision, they can appeal the that decision to:

Cassandra Marshall
Program Committee Chair
Sabin Community Development Corporation
1488 NE Alberta St
Portland, OR 97211

Applicants should explain the situation and the reason they believe they have been rejected for tenancy or discriminated against. Within 5 working days of receipt of their letter or meeting, the Program Committee Chair will review the facts and notify the applicant/tenant of their decision.

If the applicant still has issues that are unresolved, they will be given information so they can contact the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity or the Fair Housing Council of Oregon 1221 SW Yamhill Avenue #305, Portland, OR 97205, (503) 223-8197.

Once a complaint has been closed, a copy of the file will be kept at the Main Office.
