OR Housing Agency Says Audit Would Hinder Rental Assistance Claim Processing

(Salem, OR) -- The head of Oregon's agency that's distributing emergency rental assistance says now is not the time for an audit. Several lawmakers want an audit of Oregon Housing and Community Services because it's months behind in getting emergency rent assistance distributed. Director Margaret Salazar said last week an audit would take between five and 15 employees away from their jobs of processing claims to help with the audit. OHCS has only processed about half of its claims. Around 26-thousand claims remain and they're processing about 17-hundred per week. Oregon's eviction moratorium was extended until June to give the agency time.
