Assistance Updates

Updated: Apr 30





> Thrive Central Oregon and Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance funding is CLOSED


The Oregon Emergency Rental Assistance Program (OERAP) closed their application on March 21st. There is no news as to if this funding will reopen. If you applied and are wondering the status of your application, see info at the bottom of this post.


Rental assistance in Central Oregon is now accessible only to specific at-risk groups (Veterans and those receiving TANF) through our community partner NeighborImpact.


Do you have late payments or an eviction notice?

You can still contact Thrive or NeighborImpact! The NeighborImpact rental assistance program is also accepting applications from folks who are at risk of eviction.


Reminder:

Under Oregon’s Safe Harbor Law, tenants who apply for rental assistance are protected from eviction while their application is being processed. This law will continue to be in effect up until September of 2022.



Did you apply for OERAP, but you're unsure of the status of your application? Have you not heard back?

You can check the status by calling OERAP, or by logging into your online portal. Please call regularly (weekly) to make sure your application is being processed and OERAP has everything they need.

Why if my application status says "Action Pending"?

Your applicaiton status may say "action pending" because you still need to upload documents. You must upload or send in all required documents in order for your applicaiton to be processed. Please reach out to OERAP or log in to your online portal to find out what you need to do.

Tips for applying:

  • Make sure you have all the necessary documents ready before you start your application. You will need to upload them at the end of the application (see document check-list after clicking Tenants apply today).

  • Applicants must have been financially impacted by COVID-19 in order to receive assistance. Be sure to express how you have been impacted by the pandemic when answering the multiple choice questions (reduction in work hours; loss of employment; incurred expenses for masks, supplies, etc.)

  • Save your username and password so that you can log back in and check your status.

  • OERAP is a state program with thousands of applicants. It is sometimes necessary that the applicant be proactive in reaching out to the OERAP office to ensure they have all the needed documents and information.

  • You can call them at 1-844-378-2931.
