- Oregon Homeowner Support is a new website that lists HUD-approved counseling agencies. NEDCO is the designated agency for Clackamas County homeowners (not affiliated with NWFS). Their services are geared toward homeowners who are struggling to make their mortgage payments or who are already in default and at risk of foreclosure. These services are provided at NO CHARGE to the homeowner.
- In an effort to keep people in their homes through the state of emergency issued by Multnomah County, landlords will not be able to evict people who have fallen behind on rent payments. Those who are behind due to a loss of income related to COVID-19 will be given a six month grace period to pay back their rent after the state of emergency is over. There will be no late fees.
- TriMet service will continue during the unprecedented challenges facing the world and our community to stop the spread of COVID-19. However, beginning April 5, TriMet will adjust schedules to reflect the reality of dropping ridership, while preserving safety and service coverage across the tri-county area.
- TriMet will be limiting how many people are allowed on buses starting the evening of April 2. No more than 10-15 riders can be on a bus at one time — 10 individuals, or up to 15 if people are riding together (such as couples or parents with children). This is to make sure people have enough space to spread out and to prevent overcrowding. If a bus has 10-15 riders, it will not pick up new passengers until someone exits.
