Response to COVID-19
Due to COVID-19 closures and economic impacts, city staff are exploring different funding avenues for emergency rent, utility, and mortgage assistance for Beaverton residents. On March 17, 2020 the Mayor and Council passed a moratorium on evictions. The state of Oregon has also issued a moratorium on evictions for 90 days, unless terminated or amended by the governor. During this time it is unlawful for landlords to award late rent penalties as well. Please check back regularly for additional updates on COVID-19 related relief for Beaverton residents.
