Landlord Compensation Fund




Oregon's Landlord Compensation Program is designed to provide relief to residential landlords who have been unable to collect rent due to tenant hardships. During the Third Special Session of 2020, 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. This program was designed to provide relief to landlords who have tenants living in their homes who have been unable to pay rent at any point since April 2020 due to a financial hardship. The program will also eliminate the rent owed for those tenants experiencing a hardship.

Participating landlords can receive funding for an amount equal to 80% of the rental debt owed by qualified residents from April 2020 through the month the application round they are applying in opened. Landlords agree to forgive the remaining 20% of the tenant's debt as part of the grant agreement and as a condition of receiving payment.

The final deadline for accepting applications has been extended through Wednesday June 23rd at 11:59 pm.

Landlord testimonial: 

I was delighted for this opportunity to have full forgiveness for my tenant, a restaurant worker and student. To also recover 80% of my losses is a bonus I did not expect would ever happen. This process was ultimately fast, considering what had to be done to execute quickly. So thankful.
