Oregon Rental Assistance

Oregon Rental Assistance is a state program to help low-income renters with past-due rent and utilities. Starting in July 2021, tenants must pay rent each month or face eviction for nonpayment. If you are worried you cannot pay rent, apply for assistance as soon as possible. Eviction protections are not automatic.

 

To get this protection, you must:

1. Apply for rental assistance

2. If you get a nonpayment termination notice, give your landlord proof of your application

This will stop eviction for 60 days, to allow time for your application to be processed. You have the right to these protections regardless of citizenship status.
