Before Eviction Moratorium Ends, Lane County Revives Rental Assistance

My Oregon

With Oregon’s Eviction Moratorium set to expire on June 30, tenants will be required to start making rent payments beginning July 2021 or possibly face eviction. In the face of this, Lane County is re-opening applications for rental assistance to those eligible.

Lane County will begin accepting pre-applications at 9 a.m. on Friday, June 25 and finish at 5 p.m. June 28.

To qualify for rental assistance, you must be a tenant in Lane County, have a household income which does not exceed 80% of the area’s middle income level and be able to show some type of financial impact from COVID-19.

You can find more information at lanecounty.org/rent

If you have already applied for rent or utility assistance through the state website, there is no need to reapply with the county.

As of July 1, tenants must pay current rent on-time, or face eviction for non-payment. Tenants cannot be evicted for back-due rent from April 2020 through June 2021 until February 28, 2022.
