Have you gotten behind on rent and need help?
If you need help on rent or utilities as you got behind due to a COVID-related reason, visit the Oregon Rental Assistance Program to apply for assistance.
The OERAP program can serve renter households that have incomes less than 80% of Area Median Income who meet the following conditions:
- Individual(s) in the household has qualified for unemployment benefits or has experienced a reduction in household income, incurred significant costs, or has experienced other financial hardship due directly or indirectly to the coronavirus outbreak;
- and Individual(s) in the household can demonstrate a risk of experiencing homelessness or housing instability evidenced by a past due utility or rent notice.
Statewide Eviction Moratorium
The statewide eviction moratorium (HB 4401) will expire on June 30, 2021. In most cases, you cannot be evicted for nonpayment or without cause until July of 2021. Tenants who submit a Declaration of Financial Hardship to their landlords have until Feb. 28, 2022 to pay their back rent from April 2020 forward.
Protection is not automatic and you must fill out, sign, and provide a Declaration of Hardship to your landlord. If you do not provide your landlord a signed declaration, they are allowed to give termination notices based on nonpayment of rent, fees, or utilities.
It is important to note that unpaid rent is not forgiven, it will be due once the moratorium expires.

Metro Housing Bond
Metro-area voters recently approved a $652.8 million general obligation bond, a proactive measure to address the shortage of affordable housing within Metro’s urban growth boundary.
