OR Emergency Rental Portal Open for Three Weeks

For a limited time, Oregon is reopening the emergency rental aid portal. Yesterday, Oregon Housing and Community Services began again accepting new applications. This will be a limited reopening for at least three weeks, based on availability of funds. The agency estimates supporting about 9,000 additional renters, to be prioritized based on need, not on a first-come, first-served basis. OHCS says it was forced to pause the program in December due to lack of resources, but the Oregon Legislature and Governor Brown found additional funds. More than 36,000 Oregon households have received more than $256 million in rental assistance relief due to hardship from the pandemic. Tenants can apply at https://www.oregonrentalassistance.org/
