Rental assistance in Lane County
July 2 - December 31
Oregon Governor Kate Brown extended the moratorium on evictions to December 31, 2021.
Apply for rent or utilities assistance at Oregon Rental Assistance, if you are behind on rent or utilities, or cannot pay current or future rent. You can apply for up to 12 months of back rent and 3 months of future rent, as well as help with utilities. If you need help with future months, make sure to include that in your application!
The program is offered to all income-eligible renters regardless of immigration status, and it does not impact eligibility for other federally-funded programs (food stamps, Medicaid/Medicare, social security, WIC, public housing).
Assistance provided is not a loan — if you receive assistance you will not need to pay it back.
If you are finding the application at OregonRentalAssistance.org to be challenging to complete, Lane County renters can also apply for a different assistance program at Lane County.
If your landlord gives you a termination notice for non-payment, you should do two things:
(1) call 2-1-1 to see what type of help might be available and
(2) . from the time you provide documentation to your landlord — this will allow time for your application to be processed and for funds to be received if you are eligible. If you’re a tenant who has already received a notice of eviction proceedings for non-payment of rent, these protections still apply.
A CDC Eviction Protection Declaration Form provided to the landlord is required to take advantage of the moratorium. It’s available in English and Spanish.
