Housing Help

I need emergency rent assistance.

Emergency rent assistance is available to income-eligible Washington County residents who are past due on their rent. To request rent assistance, call 503-615-0770.

Important Update:

  • We are receiving an extraordinarily high number of calls. We are able to schedule 15 to 30 appointments a day (each appointment lasts about 1.5 hours).
  • We answer calls Mon. – Fri. beginning at 9:00 a.m. Calls are answered until all appointments for the day are filled. Call volume is high and hold times are long. If you receive a busy signal, please call back immediately. Hold times can be up to 90 minutes due to the high volume.
  • We have significantly increased our capacity to respond to Emergency Rent requests. For June we are increasing our number of appointments from 30 to 300. We are working hard to get help out as quickly as we can and we appreciate your patience.

I'm homeless.

If you are homeless, or are at imminent risk of becoming homeless, call our Community Connect line at 503-640-3263. You will speak to a staff member who will screen your situation. If you are eligible, we will schedule an "assessment appointment" for you to meet with a Community Resource Advocate. This person will assess your situation and help determine if services in Washington County are available to help you.
