Rental Assistance

The Oregon eviction protections are set to expire at the end of June. This means renters will need to pay back rent that's still due. The state started taking applications yesterday for additional rental assistance through the Oregon Emergency Rent Assistance Program. People are eligible if at least one person in the household had a financial impact from the pandemic (a lost job, decrease in income), and their household income is at or below 80% of the area's median income (about $77,000 for a family of 4 in the Portland metro area, or $51,000 in rural communities).

Tenants can be approved for up to 12 months of past-due rent, and three months' upcoming rent. The payments will go directly to landlords, property owners, and utility companies.

The money will be allocated based on need, so everyone who applies for the program will go through a review process.

Assistance is offered to all renters, regardless of citizenship or immigration status.

Here's a link to the application and information on how to apply:

Estimadas familias de Chehalem, Las protecciones de desalojo de Oregon expirarán a fines de junio. Esto significa que los inquilinos deberán pagar el alquiler atrasado que aún se adeuda. El estado comenzo a recibir solicitudes ayer para asistencia adicional para el alquiler a través del Programa de Asistencia para el Alquiler de Emergencia de Oregon. Las personas son elegibles si al menos una persona en el hogar tuvo un impacto financiero de la pandemia (un trabajo perdido, disminución en los ingresos) y el ingreso de su hogar es igual o inferior al 80% del ingreso medio del área (alrededor de $ 77,000 para una familia de 4 en el area metro de Portland, o $51,000 en comunidades rurales).

Los inquilinos pueden ser aprobados para hasta 12 meses de alquiler vencido y tres meses de alquiler venidero. Los pagos irán directamente a los dueños, propietarios, y empresas de servicios públicos.

El dinero se asignará según la necesidad, por lo que todos los que soliciten el programa pasarán por un proceso de revisión.

Se ofrece asistencia a todos los inquilinos, independientemente de su ciudadanía o estado migratorio.

Aquí hay un enlace a la solicitud e información sobre cómo presentar una solicitud:

Pandemic Funds

Great news! Oregon has been approved to issue retroactive Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) funds for the 2020 -2021 school year. This will provide more than $550 million in food assistance for approximately 572,000 children in Oregon. Funds will begin going out in the US Mail in July 2021. Apply now for Meal Benefits at to be sure you are eligible for P-EBT funds!

Households do not need to apply for P-EBT if you already qualify for free meals. Students in the following categories will automatically receive P-EBT funds. You DO NOT need to apply if ANY of the following are true:

  • You receive SNAP or TANF benefits
  • Your students qualify as Migrant, Foster, or Homeless
  • You have already received a Meal Benefits approval letter for 2020-2021

Apply for Meal Benefits by June 30, 2021 to be considered for P-EBT. Go to

Qualifying for free or reduced meals for the 2020 –2021 school year before June 30, 2021 will ensure you receive P-EBT when the benefits are issued. P-EBT benefit eligibility and amounts will vary. Visit for more information.
