Do you need help paying your rent?

We can help you pay rent, including back rent, if you qualify.

If your household income is less than $61,900 for a family of two, or $77,350 for a family of four, and COVID 19 affected your income, you may be eligible for assistance.

To apply, please call the Coordinated Housing Access Line 503 655-8575 or complete the form.

We speak Spanish and can help anyone, regardless of your immigration status.

The Eviction Moratorium is ending

As of July 1, every renter in Oregon must pay their current rent or risk being evicted. Tenants who submit a Declaration of Financial Hardship to their landlords have until Feb. 28, 2022 to pay their back rent from April 2020 forward.

If you want more time to pay your past due rent, you must provide a Declaration of Hardship to your landlord.  

If you do not provide your landlord a signed declaration, they are allowed to give you an eviction notice based on nonpayment of past due rent, beginning in July 2021. 

Download the declaration CHA form

You can also submit an application through the state’s website, but please do not apply for rent assistance using both forms.
