Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has extended a foreclosure moratorium, saying she wants to ensure people impacted by COVID-19 do not lose their homes or businesses this year.

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has extended a moratorium on foreclosures for homes and businesses until Dec. 31.

The protections, meant to shield people hurt financially by COVID-19, would’ve expired at the end of the month, had Brown not acted Monday underlegislation Oregon lawmakers approved this summer.

Brown’s office said she wants to work with landlords, banks and other stakeholders to come up with a long-term solution. Lawmakers meet for their biannual long session in early 2021 and will likely consider a large collection of COVID-related legislation.

A similar moratorium on rental evictions is scheduled to expire Sept. 30. The governor’s office says she is working with stakeholders to decide next steps for renters.
