For the 23-25 biennium, the Oregon Legislature, under Senate Bill 5511, allocated funds to Oregon Housing and Community Services (OHCS) to engage in activities to prevent evictions and homelessness statewide. In response, OHCS has renewed their efforts under the Oregon Eviction Diversion and Prevention (ORE-DAP) program to prioritize serving households most at risk of experiencing eviction and/or homelessness. Imminent risk households are those currently experiencing housing insecurity and are at risk of experiencing housing loss within 21 days. All households served under the ORE-DAP program are low-income households, with an area median income (AMI) of 80% or less. Funds allow agencies like OHRA to assist households by partnering with and providing a range of eviction prevention interventions such as rental assistance, coordination with partners who are providing legal services and other wrap-around interventions to support households at risk of eviction or who have become homeless and require access to housing supports.

If you or someone you know are looking for assistance, please reach out to the OHRA Center and make an appointment with a resource navigator at 541-631-2235.
