In November 2021, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced it was awarding Oregon $422 million in
Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds for recovery efforts in response to the 2020 Labor Day Fires. Administered by Oregon Housing and Community Services, this money will pay for new programs to help individuals, households, and communities continue to recover. This effort, which is called "ReOregon," will provide new permanent housing in the areas most impacted by the fires.
Assistance available now for wildfire recovery
As part of the rules for the disaster recovery grant, HUD must first approve the state’s Action Plan describing how the money will be spent before giving Oregon the funds. Through June 1, OHCS will be accepting public comment on that Action Plan. A final plan will be submitted to HUD on June 8.
This website will contain information about programs as it becomes available. Please see below for more information on the Action Plan, the process to finalize the plan, and opportunities to provide comments.
