What We Do

Our Government Relations Team guide OHCS's participation in state and federal legislative efforts and intergovernmental relationships with tribal governments to positively advance OHCS's mission and values for the benefit of all Oregonians.

House Bill Watch

On Monday, December 21st, the Oregon Legislature  enacted an eviction moratorium and  established the Landlord Compensation Fund (HB 4401). The Legislature allocated $200 million in rent assistance to support tenants and landlords, which includes $150 million for the Landlord Compensation Fund. OHCS will be developing program materials in the coming weeks as we prepare to launch the Landlord Compensation Fund in late-January 2021. Find more program details here.

​In 2019, the Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 2003 to provide the necessary steps toward helping our state reach its housing supply needs as envisioned by our land use system, while providing local jurisdictions the resources they ​need to accommodate future growth.​
