The Oregonian had a front page Saturday story HERE that says that OHCS is asking for reallocation of funds from Treasury because it has reached the limit of its Emergency Rental Assistance allocation from Treasury. The story says:
Oregon Housing and Community Services said that it has allocated nearly all its $289 million of federal emergency rental assistance.
- It's incomplete, and significantly understates the total amount of Emergency Rental Assistance funding that is available to OHCS and statewide.
- It does not explain the OHCS use of $71 million/20% in ERA funding for activities other than "direct rental assistance".
- It does not reference at all the $165 million in additional ERA assistance available directly to 6 counties and the City of Portland.
