ST VINCENT DE PAUL PORTLAND COUNCIL
EMERGENCY RENT ASSISTANCE
Provides limited, one-time rental payment assistance determined on a case-by-case basis. If found eligible, assistance is generally limited to the last $100-$200 in order to serve as many people as possible. No help is given for rent in a future month or for deposits, fees, or other amounts to move into a new residence. No rent assistance given to persons renting from a family member, relative, or friend. DOES NOT offer motel stays or vouchers. Assistance is dependent upon available funding and is NOT guaranteed.
Eligibility: Low-income households. Need must be deemed an emergency by SVDP, meaning help is provided only when eviction appears imminent. Clients may be asked to provide proof of ability to pay remaining portion of their rent before receiving any assistance. Must not have received financial assistance from SVDP in the past 12-14 months.
