Wildfire Damage Housing Relief Program


 
Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS) was directed by the 78th Oregon Legislative Assembly to develop, implement and administer the Wildfire Damage Housing Relief Account Program to assist households of lower income that suffer a loss of housing due to a wildfire.
 
To apply for up to $7,000 in assistance, applicants must have had damage or loss to their primary residence due to a wildfire and residence is considered uninhabitable unless repaired or replaced. Applicants must have an income that is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Click this link to download the application. Applicants must provide documentation of loss, proof of homeownership and proof of household income.
 
Funding for this program is limited and is dependent upon state budget allocation. If valid claims for assistance exceed the amount available, OHCS may make a pro rata reduction in grant amounts to increase the number of recipients who receive assistance. If the program depletes of all funds before receipt of any new allocation, applicants will be notified in writing and applications will be held by OHCS. If new funds become available, applications will be processed in the order that they were received. There is no guarantee that new funds will be made available.
