Rent Repayment Period Extended to February 2022
Governor Kate Brown signed Senate Bill 282 into law, a bill that extends the repayment period for residential rent accrued during the COVID-19 pandemic. The bill gives renters until February 28, 2022 to repay all rent accrued between April 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. Oregon’s residential eviction moratorium remains in effect through June 30, 2021.
Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program
Qualified Oregonians can apply for rental assistance through the Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP) to help pay past due and current rent. Critically, Oregonians may qualify to receive assistance for current, future, and past due rent after Oregon’s eviction moratorium expires on July 1. This will allow more Oregonians to stay in their homes, while they are protected by the grace period to pay rent accrued during the pandemic.
