Neighbor Impact Has Money For Rent Relief In Central Oregon

CENTRAL OREGON -- The COVID-19 pandemic has cost a lot of people their job or income. Now, Neighbor Impact has received state and federal funds to help people struggling to pay rent. Rachel Haakenson with Neighbor Impact says to qualify for rent relief the person or family must live in Deschutes, Crook or Jefferson counties or Warm Springs Reservation. She says income limits for the program are being at or below 80-per cent of the Area Median Income. Haakenson says people who have lost a job or income due to the virus are eligible as are those who have a compromised health status or a high risk of infection. She says Governor Brown put a hold on evictions for 90 days but that order expires this week. Haakenson says log onto the Neighbor Impact website to get information and to fill out the application for rent relief.
