Eviction Ban Extended Through October 1st

Don’t forget: Eviction ban extended through Oct. 1

During this pandemic, many Oregonians are having trouble paying rent. As it’s the beginning of a new month, we want to remind you that the legislature and Gov. Kate Brown extended the eviction ban through Oct. 1. They also extended the deadline to pay back rent to March 31, 2021.

You can’t be evicted for not paying rent, fees or utilities that are due between April 1 and Sept. 30, 2020.

Tell your landlord in writing as soon as you know you are unable to pay. You will still have to pay your past due rent, but you have until March 31, 2021, to do so.

To see if you qualify for rent and utility assistance, call 211 or go to 211info.org.
