Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program

(OERAP) helps eligible low-income households with their past due rent and utilities. This program uses funds from the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which allocated a collective total of $280 million to Oregon, the City of Portland, and multiple counties in the state. In most cases, approved applications will result in payments made directly to landlords and utility providers.

Renters who are eligible for the program may request rent and/or utility assistance dating back to March 13, 2020 (prior expenses are not eligible). OERAP will cover up to 12 months of past due rent and three months of forward rent, once all past due rent is paid. OERAP will also cover past due utility costs including electricity, gas, home energy services, water, sewer, trash removal, internet and bulk fuels. Costs that will NOT be covered include: homeowner costs, homeowner utilities, landlord-paid utilities, landlord-paid property taxes, property insurance, phone, and renter insurance.

If approved, in most cases, payments will be made directly to the landlord, property owner or utility company on the tenant’s behalf via direct deposit or check. OERAP funds are not first-come-first-serve. Funds will be distributed based on a formula that prioritizes applications based on need. Everyone who turns in a completed application will have their application reviewed.

Important Update:

Safe Harbor Eviction Protection Period Extended

  • Oregon Legislators recently held a special session to extend eviction protections known as “Safe Harbor” protections in Oregon (SB 278). As a result of recent legislation, tenants have protection from eviction upon showing their documentation of rental assistance application to their landlord. These protections replace the 60-day period (90 days in some jurisdictions) and now cover the entire time an application is being processed (up until September 30, 2022.)
  • In order to be protected, tenants must give proof of application to their landlord right away (by June 30, 2022 at the latest, or at or before any first court appearance, whichever is sooner.)
  • Anyone who has already applied for assistance and shown documentation of their application to their landlord at or before any first court appearance is now protected from nonpayment eviction until their application is processed.
  • Landlords are required to give 10 days of notice of termination of tenancy for nonpayment until September 30, 2022.
  • Landlords may begin eviction proceedings if you’ve missed rent and haven’t begun an application – apply to an open rental assistance program right away to access these protections!
  • If your application is closed or denied or paid in an amount that is less than is owed, your landlord can move forward with the eviction process for unpaid months.
  • If you have questions about eviction protections, please visit the Oregon Law Center’s website for updates at www.oregonlawhelp.org.

Important Information

for Oregon Renters and Landlords

There is no longer an eviction freeze in Oregon. Renters who are behind on rent or can’t pay future rent should apply for help.

Renters can apply to programs for help paying back and future rent and utilities through:

 

  • 211info.org or call 211 for information on local rent programs, or
  • oregonrentalassistance.org for the Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP)
    • NOTE: OERAP paused accepting applications on 12/1/21 for at least six weeks while waiting for new state money.

Payments go directly to landlords and utility companies.

Renters should show their landlords proof that they applied for rent help as soon as possible.

Renters are now protected from eviction until their application for rent help is processed if they show proof to their landlord.

 

  • If renters show their landlord proof that they applied for rent help before June 30, 2022, they cannot be evicted until
    • after the application is processed or
    • after September 30, 2022 – whichever is sooner.
  • Renters who already have a court case for unpaid rent should show proof that they applied for help to both their landlord and the judge to get extra time.
  • Until September 30, 2022, any notice to pay rent from a landlord must give 10 days to pay. Notices must also include special information about rent help programs and other protections.

 

Back Rent from April 2020 – June 2021: Time to Pay

The deadline to pay back rent owed for April 2020 – June 2021 is February 28, 2022. Landlords cannot evict tenants for rent owed from this period until March 1, 2022.

 

  • Renters who owe rent from this time period should apply for rent help as soon as possible before March 1, 2022.

 

Landlord Guarantee Program:

Landlords who have delayed evictions for renters who applied for rent help may qualify for this program. More information is available here.

 

  • NOTE: The Landlord Guarantee Program has paused accepting applications while making changes to the program. To get an email when the application system opens up, please share your email address with LGP@homeforward.org.

 

Other Important Changes:

Landlords with renters that owe rent for the April 2020 – June 2021 period cannot:

 

  • evict renters for rent owed for this period (until March 1, 2022)
  • charge fees for unpaid rent for this period, and
  • report renters for past due rent to a consumer credit reporting agency.

Unpaid rent from April 2020 – March 2022 cannot count against renters in future rental applications. (Oregon law SB 282)

Guests – Renters may share housing until February 28, 2022, as long as they are not breaking any laws. This means that until that time, landlords cannot evict or fine renters for having more guests than the landlord’s guest policy allows.

There is no longer an eviction freeze in Oregon. Renters who are behind on rent or can’t pay future rent should apply for help.

Renters can apply to programs for help paying back and future rent and utilities through:

 

  • 211info.org or call 211 for information on local rent programs, or
  • oregonrentalassistance.org for the Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP)
    • NOTE: OERAP paused accepting applications on 12/1/21 for at least six weeks while waiting for new state money.

Payments go directly to landlords and utility companies.

Renters should show their landlords proof that they applied for rent help as soon as possible.

Renters are now protected from eviction until their application for rent help is processed if they show proof to their landlord.

 

  • If renters show their landlord proof that they applied for rent help before June 30, 2022, they cannot be evicted until
    • after the application is processed or
    • after September 30, 2022 – whichever is sooner.
  • Renters who already have a court case for unpaid rent should show proof that they applied for help to both their landlord and the judge to get extra time.
  • Until September 30, 2022, any notice to pay rent from a landlord must give 10 days to pay. Notices must also include special information about rent help programs and other protections.

 

Back Rent from April 2020 – June 2021: Time to Pay

The deadline to pay back rent owed for April 2020 – June 2021 is February 28, 2022. Landlords cannot evict tenants for rent owed from this period until March 1, 2022.

 

  • Renters who owe rent from this time period should apply for rent help as soon as possible before March 1, 2022.

 

Landlord Guarantee Program:

Landlords who have delayed evictions for renters who applied for rent help may qualify for this program. More information is available here.

 

  • NOTE: The Landlord Guarantee Program has paused accepting applications while making changes to the program. To get an email when the application system opens up, please share your email address with LGP@homeforward.org.

 

Other Important Changes:

Landlords with renters that owe rent for the April 2020 – June 2021 period cannot:

 

  • evict renters for rent owed for this period (until March 1, 2022)
  • charge fees for unpaid rent for this period, and
  • report renters for past due rent to a consumer credit reporting agency.

Unpaid rent from April 2020 – March 2022 cannot count against renters in future rental applications. (Oregon law SB 282)

Guests – Renters may share housing until February 28, 2022, as long as they are not breaking any laws. This means that until that time, landlords cannot evict or fine renters for having more guests than the landlord’s guest policy allows.

Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program

(OERAP) helps eligible low-income households with their past due rent and utilities. This program uses funds from the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which allocated a collective total of $280 million to Oregon, the City of Portland, and multiple counties in the state. In most cases, approved applications will result in payments made directly to landlords and utility providers.

Renters who are eligible for the program may request rent and/or utility assistance dating back to March 13, 2020 (prior expenses are not eligible). OERAP will cover up to 12 months of past due rent and three months of forward rent, once all past due rent is paid. OERAP will also cover past due utility costs including electricity, gas, home energy services, water, sewer, trash removal, internet and bulk fuels. Costs that will NOT be covered include: homeowner costs, homeowner utilities, landlord-paid utilities, landlord-paid property taxes, property insurance, phone, and renter insurance.

If approved, in most cases, payments will be made directly to the landlord, property owner or utility company on the tenant’s behalf via direct deposit or check. OERAP funds are not first-come-first-serve. Funds will be distributed based on a formula that prioritizes applications based on need. Everyone who turns in a completed application will have their application reviewed.

Important Update:

Safe Harbor Eviction Protection Period Extended

  • Oregon Legislators recently held a special session to extend eviction protections known as “Safe Harbor” protections in Oregon (SB 278). As a result of recent legislation, tenants have protection from eviction upon showing their documentation of rental assistance application to their landlord. These protections replace the 60-day period (90 days in some jurisdictions) and now cover the entire time an application is being processed (up until September 30, 2022.)
  • In order to be protected, tenants must give proof of application to their landlord right away (by June 30, 2022 at the latest, or at or before any first court appearance, whichever is sooner.)
  • Anyone who has already applied for assistance and shown documentation of their application to their landlord at or before any first court appearance is now protected from nonpayment eviction until their application is processed.
  • Landlords are required to give 10 days of notice of termination of tenancy for nonpayment until September 30, 2022.
  • Landlords may begin eviction proceedings if you’ve missed rent and haven’t begun an application – apply to an open rental assistance program right away to access these protections!
  • If your application is closed or denied or paid in an amount that is less than is owed, your landlord can move forward with the eviction process for unpaid months.
  • If you have questions about eviction protections, please visit the Oregon Law Center’s website for updates at www.oregonlawhelp.org.

Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program

(OERAP) helps eligible low-income households with their past due rent and utilities. This program uses funds from the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which allocated a collective total of $280 million to Oregon, the City of Portland, and multiple counties in the state. In most cases, approved applications will result in payments made directly to landlords and utility providers.

Renters who are eligible for the program may request rent and/or utility assistance dating back to March 13, 2020 (prior expenses are not eligible). OERAP will cover up to 12 months of past due rent and three months of forward rent, once all past due rent is paid. OERAP will also cover past due utility costs including electricity, gas, home energy services, water, sewer, trash removal, internet and bulk fuels. Costs that will NOT be covered include: homeowner costs, homeowner utilities, landlord-paid utilities, landlord-paid property taxes, property insurance, phone, and renter insurance.

If approved, in most cases, payments will be made directly to the landlord, property owner or utility company on the tenant’s behalf via direct deposit or check. OERAP funds are not first-come-first-serve. Funds will be distributed based on a formula that prioritizes applications based on need. Everyone who turns in a completed application will have their application reviewed.

Important Update:

Safe Harbor Eviction Protection Period Extended

  • Oregon Legislators recently held a special session to extend eviction protections known as “Safe Harbor” protections in Oregon (SB 278). As a result of recent legislation, tenants have protection from eviction upon showing their documentation of rental assistance application to their landlord. These protections replace the 60-day period (90 days in some jurisdictions) and now cover the entire time an application is being processed (up until September 30, 2022.)
  • In order to be protected, tenants must give proof of application to their landlord right away (by June 30, 2022 at the latest, or at or before any first court appearance, whichever is sooner.)
  • Anyone who has already applied for assistance and shown documentation of their application to their landlord at or before any first court appearance is now protected from nonpayment eviction until their application is processed.
  • Landlords are required to give 10 days of notice of termination of tenancy for nonpayment until September 30, 2022.
  • Landlords may begin eviction proceedings if you’ve missed rent and haven’t begun an application – apply to an open rental assistance program right away to access these protections!
  • If your application is closed or denied or paid in an amount that is less than is owed, your landlord can move forward with the eviction process for unpaid months.
  • If you have questions about eviction protections, please visit the Oregon Law Center’s website for updates at www.oregonlawhelp.org.

Important Information

for Oregon Renters and Landlords

There is no longer an eviction freeze in Oregon. Renters who are behind on rent or can’t pay future rent should apply for help.

Renters can apply to programs for help paying back and future rent and utilities through:

 

  • 211info.org or call 211 for information on local rent programs, or
  • oregonrentalassistance.org for the Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP)
    • NOTE: OERAP paused accepting applications on 12/1/21 for at least six weeks while waiting for new state money.

Payments go directly to landlords and utility companies.

Renters should show their landlords proof that they applied for rent help as soon as possible.

Renters are now protected from eviction until their application for rent help is processed if they show proof to their landlord.

 

  • If renters show their landlord proof that they applied for rent help before June 30, 2022, they cannot be evicted until
    • after the application is processed or
    • after September 30, 2022 – whichever is sooner.
  • Renters who already have a court case for unpaid rent should show proof that they applied for help to both their landlord and the judge to get extra time.
  • Until September 30, 2022, any notice to pay rent from a landlord must give 10 days to pay. Notices must also include special information about rent help programs and other protections.

 

Back Rent from April 2020 – June 2021: Time to Pay

The deadline to pay back rent owed for April 2020 – June 2021 is February 28, 2022. Landlords cannot evict tenants for rent owed from this period until March 1, 2022.

 

  • Renters who owe rent from this time period should apply for rent help as soon as possible before March 1, 2022.

 

Landlord Guarantee Program:

Landlords who have delayed evictions for renters who applied for rent help may qualify for this program. More information is available here.

 

  • NOTE: The Landlord Guarantee Program has paused accepting applications while making changes to the program. To get an email when the application system opens up, please share your email address with LGP@homeforward.org.

 

Other Important Changes:

Landlords with renters that owe rent for the April 2020 – June 2021 period cannot:

 

  • evict renters for rent owed for this period (until March 1, 2022)
  • charge fees for unpaid rent for this period, and
  • report renters for past due rent to a consumer credit reporting agency.

Unpaid rent from April 2020 – March 2022 cannot count against renters in future rental applications. (Oregon law SB 282)

Guests – Renters may share housing until February 28, 2022, as long as they are not breaking any laws. This means that until that time, landlords cannot evict or fine renters for having more guests than the landlord’s guest policy allows.

Important Update:

Safe Harbor Eviction Protection Period Extended

  • Oregon Legislators recently held a special session to extend eviction protections known as “Safe Harbor” protections in Oregon (SB 278). As a result of recent legislation, tenants have protection from eviction upon showing their documentation of rental assistance application to their landlord. These protections replace the 60-day period (90 days in some jurisdictions) and now cover the entire time an application is being processed (up until September 30, 2022.)
  • In order to be protected, tenants must give proof of application to their landlord right away (by June 30, 2022 at the latest, or at or before any first court appearance, whichever is sooner.)
  • Anyone who has already applied for assistance and shown documentation of their application to their landlord at or before any first court appearance is now protected from nonpayment eviction until their application is processed.
  • Landlords are required to give 10 days of notice of termination of tenancy for nonpayment until September 30, 2022.
  • Landlords may begin eviction proceedings if you’ve missed rent and haven’t begun an application – apply to an open rental assistance program right away to access these protections!
  • If your application is closed or denied or paid in an amount that is less than is owed, your landlord can move forward with the eviction process for unpaid months.
  • If you have questions about eviction protections, please visit the Oregon Law Center’s website for updates at www.oregonlawhelp.org.

Important Information

for Oregon Renters and Landlords

There is no longer an eviction freeze in Oregon. Renters who are behind on rent or can’t pay future rent should apply for help.

Renters can apply to programs for help paying back and future rent and utilities through:

 

  • 211info.org or call 211 for information on local rent programs, or
  • oregonrentalassistance.org for the Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP)
    • NOTE: OERAP paused accepting applications on 12/1/21 for at least six weeks while waiting for new state money.

Payments go directly to landlords and utility companies.

Renters should show their landlords proof that they applied for rent help as soon as possible.

Renters are now protected from eviction until their application for rent help is processed if they show proof to their landlord.

 

  • If renters show their landlord proof that they applied for rent help before June 30, 2022, they cannot be evicted until
    • after the application is processed or
    • after September 30, 2022 – whichever is sooner.
  • Renters who already have a court case for unpaid rent should show proof that they applied for help to both their landlord and the judge to get extra time.
  • Until September 30, 2022, any notice to pay rent from a landlord must give 10 days to pay. Notices must also include special information about rent help programs and other protections.

 

Back Rent from April 2020 – June 2021: Time to Pay

The deadline to pay back rent owed for April 2020 – June 2021 is February 28, 2022. Landlords cannot evict tenants for rent owed from this period until March 1, 2022.

 

  • Renters who owe rent from this time period should apply for rent help as soon as possible before March 1, 2022.

 

Landlord Guarantee Program:

Landlords who have delayed evictions for renters who applied for rent help may qualify for this program. More information is available here.

 

  • NOTE: The Landlord Guarantee Program has paused accepting applications while making changes to the program. To get an email when the application system opens up, please share your email address with LGP@homeforward.org.

 

Other Important Changes:

Landlords with renters that owe rent for the April 2020 – June 2021 period cannot:

 

  • evict renters for rent owed for this period (until March 1, 2022)
  • charge fees for unpaid rent for this period, and
  • report renters for past due rent to a consumer credit reporting agency.

Unpaid rent from April 2020 – March 2022 cannot count against renters in future rental applications. (Oregon law SB 282)

Guests – Renters may share housing until February 28, 2022, as long as they are not breaking any laws. This means that until that time, landlords cannot evict or fine renters for having more guests than the landlord’s guest policy allows.

Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program

(OERAP) helps eligible low-income households with their past due rent and utilities. This program uses funds from the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which allocated a collective total of $280 million to Oregon, the City of Portland, and multiple counties in the state. In most cases, approved applications will result in payments made directly to landlords and utility providers.

Renters who are eligible for the program may request rent and/or utility assistance dating back to March 13, 2020 (prior expenses are not eligible). OERAP will cover up to 12 months of past due rent and three months of forward rent, once all past due rent is paid. OERAP will also cover past due utility costs including electricity, gas, home energy services, water, sewer, trash removal, internet and bulk fuels. Costs that will NOT be covered include: homeowner costs, homeowner utilities, landlord-paid utilities, landlord-paid property taxes, property insurance, phone, and renter insurance.

If approved, in most cases, payments will be made directly to the landlord, property owner or utility company on the tenant’s behalf via direct deposit or check. OERAP funds are not first-come-first-serve. Funds will be distributed based on a formula that prioritizes applications based on need. Everyone who turns in a completed application will have their application reviewed.

Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program

(OERAP) helps eligible low-income households with their past due rent and utilities. This program uses funds from the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which allocated a collective total of $280 million to Oregon, the City of Portland, and multiple counties in the state. In most cases, approved applications will result in payments made directly to landlords and utility providers.

Renters who are eligible for the program may request rent and/or utility assistance dating back to March 13, 2020 (prior expenses are not eligible). OERAP will cover up to 12 months of past due rent and three months of forward rent, once all past due rent is paid. OERAP will also cover past due utility costs including electricity, gas, home energy services, water, sewer, trash removal, internet and bulk fuels. Costs that will NOT be covered include: homeowner costs, homeowner utilities, landlord-paid utilities, landlord-paid property taxes, property insurance, phone, and renter insurance.

If approved, in most cases, payments will be made directly to the landlord, property owner or utility company on the tenant’s behalf via direct deposit or check. OERAP funds are not first-come-first-serve. Funds will be distributed based on a formula that prioritizes applications based on need. Everyone who turns in a completed application will have their application reviewed.

Important Update:

Safe Harbor Eviction Protection Period Extended

  • Oregon Legislators recently held a special session to extend eviction protections known as “Safe Harbor” protections in Oregon (SB 278). As a result of recent legislation, tenants have protection from eviction upon showing their documentation of rental assistance application to their landlord. These protections replace the 60-day period (90 days in some jurisdictions) and now cover the entire time an application is being processed (up until September 30, 2022.)
  • In order to be protected, tenants must give proof of application to their landlord right away (by June 30, 2022 at the latest, or at or before any first court appearance, whichever is sooner.)
  • Anyone who has already applied for assistance and shown documentation of their application to their landlord at or before any first court appearance is now protected from nonpayment eviction until their application is processed.
  • Landlords are required to give 10 days of notice of termination of tenancy for nonpayment until September 30, 2022.
  • Landlords may begin eviction proceedings if you’ve missed rent and haven’t begun an application – apply to an open rental assistance program right away to access these protections!
  • If your application is closed or denied or paid in an amount that is less than is owed, your landlord can move forward with the eviction process for unpaid months.
  • If you have questions about eviction protections, please visit the Oregon Law Center’s website for updates at www.oregonlawhelp.org.

Important Information

for Oregon Renters and Landlords

There is no longer an eviction freeze in Oregon. Renters who are behind on rent or can’t pay future rent should apply for help.

Renters can apply to programs for help paying back and future rent and utilities through:

 

  • 211info.org or call 211 for information on local rent programs, or
  • oregonrentalassistance.org for the Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP)
    • NOTE: OERAP paused accepting applications on 12/1/21 for at least six weeks while waiting for new state money.

Payments go directly to landlords and utility companies.

Renters should show their landlords proof that they applied for rent help as soon as possible.

Renters are now protected from eviction until their application for rent help is processed if they show proof to their landlord.

 

  • If renters show their landlord proof that they applied for rent help before June 30, 2022, they cannot be evicted until
    • after the application is processed or
    • after September 30, 2022 – whichever is sooner.
  • Renters who already have a court case for unpaid rent should show proof that they applied for help to both their landlord and the judge to get extra time.
  • Until September 30, 2022, any notice to pay rent from a landlord must give 10 days to pay. Notices must also include special information about rent help programs and other protections.

 

Back Rent from April 2020 – June 2021: Time to Pay

The deadline to pay back rent owed for April 2020 – June 2021 is February 28, 2022. Landlords cannot evict tenants for rent owed from this period until March 1, 2022.

 

  • Renters who owe rent from this time period should apply for rent help as soon as possible before March 1, 2022.

 

Landlord Guarantee Program:

Landlords who have delayed evictions for renters who applied for rent help may qualify for this program. More information is available here.

 

  • NOTE: The Landlord Guarantee Program has paused accepting applications while making changes to the program. To get an email when the application system opens up, please share your email address with LGP@homeforward.org.

 

Other Important Changes:

Landlords with renters that owe rent for the April 2020 – June 2021 period cannot:

 

  • evict renters for rent owed for this period (until March 1, 2022)
  • charge fees for unpaid rent for this period, and
  • report renters for past due rent to a consumer credit reporting agency.

Unpaid rent from April 2020 – March 2022 cannot count against renters in future rental applications. (Oregon law SB 282)

Guests – Renters may share housing until February 28, 2022, as long as they are not breaking any laws. This means that until that time, landlords cannot evict or fine renters for having more guests than the landlord’s guest policy allows.

Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program

(OERAP) helps eligible low-income households with their past due rent and utilities. This program uses funds from the federal Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which allocated a collective total of $280 million to Oregon, the City of Portland, and multiple counties in the state. In most cases, approved applications will result in payments made directly to landlords and utility providers.

Renters who are eligible for the program may request rent and/or utility assistance dating back to March 13, 2020 (prior expenses are not eligible). OERAP will cover up to 12 months of past due rent and three months of forward rent, once all past due rent is paid. OERAP will also cover past due utility costs including electricity, gas, home energy services, water, sewer, trash removal, internet and bulk fuels. Costs that will NOT be covered include: homeowner costs, homeowner utilities, landlord-paid utilities, landlord-paid property taxes, property insurance, phone, and renter insurance.

If approved, in most cases, payments will be made directly to the landlord, property owner or utility company on the tenant’s behalf via direct deposit or check. OERAP funds are not first-come-first-serve. Funds will be distributed based on a formula that prioritizes applications based on need. Everyone who turns in a completed application will have their application reviewed.

Important Update:

Safe Harbor Eviction Protection Period Extended

  • Oregon Legislators recently held a special session to extend eviction protections known as “Safe Harbor” protections in Oregon (SB 278). As a result of recent legislation, tenants have protection from eviction upon showing their documentation of rental assistance application to their landlord. These protections replace the 60-day period (90 days in some jurisdictions) and now cover the entire time an application is being processed (up until September 30, 2022.)
  • In order to be protected, tenants must give proof of application to their landlord right away (by June 30, 2022 at the latest, or at or before any first court appearance, whichever is sooner.)
  • Anyone who has already applied for assistance and shown documentation of their application to their landlord at or before any first court appearance is now protected from nonpayment eviction until their application is processed.
  • Landlords are required to give 10 days of notice of termination of tenancy for nonpayment until September 30, 2022.
  • Landlords may begin eviction proceedings if you’ve missed rent and haven’t begun an application – apply to an open rental assistance program right away to access these protections!
  • If your application is closed or denied or paid in an amount that is less than is owed, your landlord can move forward with the eviction process for unpaid months.
  • If you have questions about eviction protections, please visit the Oregon Law Center’s website for updates at www.oregonlawhelp.org.

Important Information

for Oregon Renters and Landlords

There is no longer an eviction freeze in Oregon. Renters who are behind on rent or can’t pay future rent should apply for help.

Renters can apply to programs for help paying back and future rent and utilities through:

 

  • 211info.org or call 211 for information on local rent programs, or
  • oregonrentalassistance.org for the Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP)
    • NOTE: OERAP paused accepting applications on 12/1/21 for at least six weeks while waiting for new state money.

Payments go directly to landlords and utility companies.

Renters should show their landlords proof that they applied for rent help as soon as possible.

Renters are now protected from eviction until their application for rent help is processed if they show proof to their landlord.

 

  • If renters show their landlord proof that they applied for rent help before June 30, 2022, they cannot be evicted until
    • after the application is processed or
    • after September 30, 2022 – whichever is sooner.
  • Renters who already have a court case for unpaid rent should show proof that they applied for help to both their landlord and the judge to get extra time.
  • Until September 30, 2022, any notice to pay rent from a landlord must give 10 days to pay. Notices must also include special information about rent help programs and other protections.

 

Back Rent from April 2020 – June 2021: Time to Pay

The deadline to pay back rent owed for April 2020 – June 2021 is February 28, 2022. Landlords cannot evict tenants for rent owed from this period until March 1, 2022.

 

  • Renters who owe rent from this time period should apply for rent help as soon as possible before March 1, 2022.

 

Landlord Guarantee Program:

Landlords who have delayed evictions for renters who applied for rent help may qualify for this program. More information is available here.

 

  • NOTE: The Landlord Guarantee Program has paused accepting applications while making changes to the program. To get an email when the application system opens up, please share your email address with LGP@homeforward.org.

 

Other Important Changes:

Landlords with renters that owe rent for the April 2020 – June 2021 period cannot:

 

  • evict renters for rent owed for this period (until March 1, 2022)
  • charge fees for unpaid rent for this period, and
  • report renters for past due rent to a consumer credit reporting agency.

Unpaid rent from April 2020 – March 2022 cannot count against renters in future rental applications. (Oregon law SB 282)

Guests – Renters may share housing until February 28, 2022, as long as they are not breaking any laws. This means that until that time, landlords cannot evict or fine renters for having more guests than the landlord’s guest policy allows.
