OHCS helps renters find safe and affordable housing. We offer rental assistance programs and many other resources. We offer the following renter guides, tips and other resources. These will help you find rental housing that meets your housing and financial status.

Are you a renter?

If you can’t afford your rent, contact your local community action agency or call or text 2-1-1 for assistance. 

Oregon’s eviction moratorium: 

Governor Kate Brown and the Oregon Legislature have made it unlawful for landlords to evict people who can’t afford their rent. This rule will last until June 30, 2021.

Renters must sign and return a form to their landlord if they can’t afford their rent. This form will be available from the Oregon Judicial Branch. The Oregon Law Center has the form and more information in English and Spanish
