The Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP) helps eligible low-income households who have experienced financial hardship due to the coronavirus pandemic and are at risk of homelessness or housing instability with their current, future, and past due rent dating back to March 13, 2020.

When assistance is available, funds are not first-come-first-serve. Funds will be distributed based on a formula that prioritizes applications based on need. Everyone who applies will have their application reviewed.

Eligibility: Must meet the following three eligibility requirements:

-Renting in Oregon
Eligible properties include apartments, single-family homes, rented manufactured home lots, hotel and motel stays (if this is your primary residence), and other informal lease agreements, subject to review. You may also be eligible if you live in public housing, have Section 8 or a Housing Choice Voucher, or other housing assistance so long as the outstanding payments have not been paid through other assistance. Those that are houseless may receive assistance for a rental deposit if they have signed a lease.

-One or more members of your household can demonstrate how the COVID-19 pandemic has directly or indirectly impacted your ability to pay rent or utilities.

-Your annual household income is at or below 80% of the Area Median Income for your household size: www.oregon.gov/ohcs/housing-assistance/Documents/05-13-2021-OERAP-AMI-chart.pdf

Assistance is offered to all eligible renters regardless of their citizenship or immigration status, and it will not impact the recipient’s eligibility for other federally funded programs.
