Hello. I have some feedback. It is nice that the State of Oregon provides assistance. However, the assistance they provide is a drop in the bucket of what someone needs. When rent is on average $700 - $1000 or more per month for ONE person, how in the world is $75 going to help? That is only 10% or less of what is needed. Also having to wait until one foot is out the door (ie 72 hour eviction notice) is a 'little' late for any help, especially since one has to wait until help is provided from other sources first before one can apply. This is a joke, an insult to those who are in serious need. If you are going to offer assistance, at least make it enough that it will actually help someone out. For example, 25% of the rent at LEAST. For one month.
