The State of Oregon has established a $35,000,000 emergency relief fund which citizens of the State of Oregon can apply for if they meet the following criteria:
- Residents of the State
- Make less than $4,000 per month
- Adversely impacted economically by the COVID-19 pandemic
- Agree to provide some basic demographic information to the State
If applicants meet the above criteria via a one-page application they must complete, then they will qualify for a $500 grant. At $500/person and a $35,000,000 fund, this will provide some financial relief to 70,000 residents on a first-come, first-served basis.
This program will kickoff on Thursday, August 13 and will last until the funds are fully disbursed. The funds will most likely go very fast.
