Washington County ERA program continues

Renters in need of assistance can continue to apply online or over the phone through Community Action.

For Immediate Release: Wednesday, December 01, 2021

Sponsored by: Housing Services Department

Emergency rental assistance still available

 

While the state has made the difficult decision to pause accepting new applications at midnight on December 1 for the Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP), Washington County’s local Emergency Rental Assistance (ERA) program continues to accept applications through existing local pathways.

Community Action, the agency administering the local funds for Washington County, maintains a phone line, an online portal and has established partnerships with other agencies, community-based organizations as well as public health contact tracing staff to get the funds out as quickly as possible. These local funds will continue to be available for income-eligible renters over the foreseeable future.

“Our priority right now is meeting the needs of Washington County renters struggling financially by helping them stay in their homes and helping property owners who are also feeling financial pressure,” said Board of County Commissioners Chair Kathryn Harrington. “Thanks to Community Action, we’ve cut about 20 days from the processing time for these local applications – and we are working to shorten this response time even more. Nonetheless, renters should expect several weeks before payments directly to landlords are made due to high demand for this vital support.”

Oregon has safe harbor rules in place that mean renters cannot be evicted for 60 days, or 90 days in some parts of Washington County, if they show their landlords proof of having applied for any emergency rental assistance program. These maps show the protections for the different jurisdictions within Washington County (Information in English mapping tool) bit.ly/3aTeFbc or (Information in Spanish mapping tool Protección contra desalojos (arcgis.com).

All renters needing assistance and residing in Washington County are encouraged to apply for the Emergency Rental Assistance program.
