During the pandemic, terminating a tenancy for non-payment required a 10 day notice. This temporary tenant protection expired in October, 2022 and the rules will revert to standard state law, which generally requires only a 72 hour notice when terminating a tenancy for non-payment. These notices can be served as early as the 8th of the month that rent is not paid.

How does Coordinated Housing Access Work?
- Call Coordinated Housing Access at 503-655-8575 and leave a message or fill out the online form. Due to the very high call volume, our response time is longer than normal.
- Staff will call or text you as soon as possible to set up a phone screening. At times, it could take up to 3 weeks to receive a call back.
- During the phone screening, you will be asked some basic questions regarding your household and current housing situation. The goal of this screening is to help you problem solve, and possible get you matched with housing programs that could best meet your needs. Some of the housing programs we screen for have waitlists.
- Keep us updated if your contact/household information changes.
- You will be contacted by a program when there is an opening.
