OR Has Backlog of Emergency Rental Assistance Applications

(Portland, OR) -- The state of Oregon has a backlog of 20-thousand emergency rental assistance applications it's working to process. So far, they've paid out 130-million dollars to more than 19-thousand applicants. Tenants are protected for two months after they file for emergency assistance, but many of the applications are taking longer than that to get processed. Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas counties have the most applications that are past the window for protection.
