DEQ anticipates issuing the first grants to eligible third-party organizations (not individual property owners) beginning in Fall 2022. These organizations will then accept applications for grants and loans to eligible property owners with a focus on low- and moderate-income residents and communities that were disproportionally impacted by the pandemic. Information on this page will be updated as funding becomes available through sub-awardee organizations.
DEQ and Craft3 are partnering to offer a unique financial aid package to help homeowners impacted by the 2020 wildfires. Beginning July 1, 2022, fire-impacted property owners can apply for both a loan and a grant to repair or replace their onsite septic system. Eligible borrowers will be offered grant resources on a sliding scale based on annual household income. This grant award can cover a significant share of project costs. Onsite septic system project costs that exceed the grant award can be covered by an affordable Craft3 loan. For more information visit the Craft3 web page, Financial Assistance to Repair Septic Systems Damaged in Oregon's 2020 Wildfires.
The first round of proposal solicitation is closed. Please check back here for updates regarding round two.
DEQ can provide documents in an alternate format or in a language other than English upon request. Call DEQ at 800-452-4011 or email email@example.com
