Property Tax

What is CAFFA?

The Legislature established the County Assessment Function Funding Assistance (CAFFA) annual grant program to help cover assessment and taxation costs for counties. Funding for the grants comes from portions of document recording fees and delinquent property tax interest.

Each county must submit an application annually with an estimate of staffing, workload and expenditures to support their assessment and taxation program. The department certifies each county to participate in the grant if its budget maintains system adequacy as provided in ORS 294.175.
