Today, Governor Kate Brown issued a 90-day order to temporarily stop residential evictions for nonpayment due to the spread of coronavirus in Oregon.

“Through no fault of their own, many Oregonians have lost jobs, closed businesses, and found themselves without a source of income to pay rent and other housing costs during this coronavirus outbreak,” said Governor Brown.

“The last thing we need to do during this crisis is turn out more Oregonians struggling to make ends meet from their homes and onto the streets,” said Governor Brown.

Under the Governor's emergency powers, the order places a temporary hold throughout Oregon on law enforcement actions related to residential evictions for not paying rent.

The Governor and her Coronavirus Economic Advisory Council are engaging lenders and exploring state and federal policy options to assist landlords and property owners with paying for building operations. 

Oregon Housing and Community Services and the Department of Consumer and Business Services are also pursuing relief options.
