Wildfire Damage Housing Relief

The application period for the 2021 wildfire season is not open. Please sign up for email updates here.

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 $6,500 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. Applicants must provide proof of homeownership or residency (lease/rental agreement) and proof of household income and, if needed, documentation of loss.
Funding for this program is limited and is dependent upon state budget allocation. 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.
