On June 30th, 2021, the statewide Oregon eviction moratorium expired—however, there is still eviction protection available to renters who apply for rental assistance.
Oregon Senate Bill 278 (SB 278), which went into effect July 1st, 2021, provides eviction protection for renters who apply for rental assistance and are able to provide application documentation to their landlord. Under SB 278 this protection is good for 60 days, however in Multnomah County renters may be entitled to 90 days of protection. This is important because both state and county rental assistance may take time to be allocated.
Secure your family’s livelihood by applying for rental assistance to help pay past due and present rent, while acquiring protection from eviction for up to 90 days.

Note: tenants cannot be evicted for owing rent for the months between April 2020 and June 2021, and have until February 28, 2022, to pay that rent back. There is assistance to help renters do so, but it is strongly suggested that you apply as soon as possible.
