Employment Related Day Care Assistance through DHS

Employment Related Day Care (ERDC) benefits may be approved for children participating in online schooling due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While formerly online schooling was not considered a childcare need (such as for home-schooling), ODHS recognizes the need for high quality care even while a child is completing their schooling virtually. Examples: helping child log in online, contact with a teacher, developing schedules to support a child’s distance learning and assisting with completion of schoolwork. Families and providers may contact the Direct Pay Unit at1-800-699-9074, Monday through Friday, 8:30am – 4:30pm.

HOUSING - Lane County: Information on Eviction Moratoriums

The following is a direct quote from Lane County's website on tenant's rights under House Bill 4213. Further information can be found here.


"Under the new law, a landlord can give the tenant a notice saying how much rent the tenant owes and will have to pay back by March 31, 2021. Starting October 1, 2020 a landlord can also give a notice to the tenant requiring that the tenant tell the landlord within 14 days if the tenant plans to use the six-month grace period to pay back any rent owing.

It is extremely important that tenants respond to this notice. If a tenant does not tell the landlord that they plan to use the six-month grace period to pay back the deferred rent, the landlord can charge the tenant half a month’s rent as a penalty.

Tenants can notify their landlord that they plan to use the six-month grace period by text, email, letter, or verbally. But tenants should be sure to keep a record of all of their communications with their landlords about their rent repayments."
