Eligibility applications for rent assistance for Lane County renters are now closed.

We recognize that COVID-19 has created huge disruptions in all of our lives and we know that that many people in our community are experiencing reduced income, as well as health concerns. The need for financial assistance is great and we are working diligently to help as many people as swiftly as possible.

In the initial rent assistance eligibility screening from July 15, 2020 to July 22, 2020, Lane County received 1,575 applications. Each application was assigned a unique identifier number. A ‘lottery’ system using a random number generator was applied to select 378 applications to be served in the first round. These applications were referred to local service providers for processing. With a second ‘lottery’ round conducted this week, 665 applications have now been referred to providers for processing.

Lane County will continue to conduct lottery rounds until funding is exhausted. We are hopeful that all applications can be processed.

The Lane County website has useful information about the eviction moratorium in place until September 30, 2020 and your rights and responsibilities as a renter.

There may be other assistance in the community for which you qualify. Please check the Lane County COVID-19 Long-Term Recovery webpage for updates regarding rent and energy assistance programs.

Additionally, local service provider White Bird Clinic has compiled a comprehensive social services directory available here: https://whitebirdclinic.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/Little-Help-Book-2020.pdf.

A total of $5.1 million is available. The funding was provided by the federal COVID-19 CARES Act.
