RENT AND UTILITY ASSISTANCE

Governor Kate Brown Issues Commercial Eviction Ban: Governor Kate Brown today issued Executive Order, placing a 90-day moratorium on commercial evictions for nonpayment, in light of the impacts on business owners caused by the COVID-19 crisis. The order also strengthens Governor Brown’s previous ban on residential evictions, and prohibits landlords from charging tenants late fees for nonpayment of rent during the moratorium.

BIAS & HATE INCIDENTS

Oregon Department of Justice 

What is a Hate and Bias Incident? A hate and bias incident is any hostile expression that may be motivated by another person’s race, color, disability, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity. The act does not need to be a federal, state or local crime.

Examples of Hate and Bias Incidents Hate and bias acts can be verbal, physical, or visual. This language and behavior often contributes to, or creates, an unsafe or unwelcoming environment. Some examples include:

  • Name calling; using a racial, ethnic or other slur to identify someone; or using degrading language. Creating racist or derogatory graffiti or images/drawings. Imitating someone with a disability, or imitating someone’s cultural norm or practice.

Why Should I Report? While hate and bias incidents sometimes target specific individuals, they often violate an entire group or community’s sense of safety and belonging. Graffiti on the wall, fliers, anonymous emails and language meant to harass individuals convey intolerance that impacts all of us. We want Oregon to be welcoming and inclusive.

The Oregon Employment Department provides Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits to most workers who are out of work through no fault of their own. In non-pandemic times, to get benefits, workers must meet some requirements. In general, to receive UI benefits for a week, you must be able to work, be available for work, and look for work you can do. During these times, the agency’s temporary rules (linked below) add flexibility to those requirements, by helping those who are temporarily laid off stay connected to their employers, and accommodating Stay Home, Save Lives orders as they relate to availability for work. Please read the questions below for more details. 

WE WILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE THIS PAGE WITH INFORMATION FOR OUR COMMUNITY MEMBERS AS NEW INFORMATION BECOMES AVAILABLE
