OR Pauses Emergency Rental Assistance Application Acceptance

(Portland, OR) -- The State of Oregon has paused acceptance of new applications for emergency rental assistance. The Oregon Housing and Community Services agency says all of the 289-million dollars in federal money has been allocated. They're continuing to process applications for assistance, but aren't taking new applications for six weeks. There are local rent assistance funds available. Tenants should call 2-1-1 or community action agencies in their area if they're in danger of eviction. The Oregon Legislature will meet later this month to consider allocating local money to continue the program.
