The Oregon Homeownership Stabilization Initiative (OHSI) recently opened a COVID-19 Mortgage Relief program to help Oregon homeowners who have fallen behind on their mortgage during the pandemic. Funding is limited, and homeowners are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

If you have suffered a financial hardship and have fallen behind on your mortgage, we may be able to help in the form of a five-year forgivable loan recorded as a mortgage on your property. Find out more about the COVID-19 Mortgage Relief program and eligibility details at​
