SALEM, Ore. – Over $8 million is being provided for Oregonians who need help during the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Oregon Housing and Community Services, the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic has left many Oregonians without the money to pay rent, buy food or make utility payments.
“Through no fault of their own, many Oregonian families are facing an abrupt loss of income and find themselves unable to pay their rent during this pandemic,” said Governor Kate Brown. “Through Oregon Housing and Community Services, we can deliver immediate rent relief so that more families can stay housed as we work to build a safe and strong Oregon.”
For Oregon families who are struggling to make it through, Oregon Housing and Community Services is allocating $8.5 million in relief funds based on a Community Action Agencies (CAAs) formula. The money is provided by the federal CARES Act.
