Commercial Rent Relief Program

The Oregon Legislative Emergency Board on January 8, 2021, allocated $100 million to fund a new Commercial Rent Relief Program to provide financial assistance to small businesses and landlords adversely affected by economic conditions as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program targets landlords with tenant businesses with 100 or fewer employees who are behind on lease payments or any forgiven base rent amounts that have been negotiated due to COVID-19. The program will require both business tenant and property owner participation. The program includes additional protections for tenants, such as non-eviction clauses, and a waiver of penalties and interest.

Round one applications closed on March 22. Applicants who have been notified to complete Landlord/Tenant Contract forms, must have their forms filed by May 14, 2021. Applicants who have been notified to complete Landlord/Tenant Award Letter forms must have their forms filed by May 24, 2021. These deadlines are necessary to keep the Commercial Rent Relief Program, a one-time and emergency initiative, on schedule and moving forward.

Round two applications closed May 6, 2021. Check this page for details or sign up to be notified for COVID-19 news.
