Rent assistance in Eugene Oregon and Lane County.

Get information on rental assistance programs in Lane County and Eugene Oregon. People who are faced with eviction, or who need a little help in paying their rent or security deposits, can call or apply at the churches, government programs and charity agencies listed below. While funding is limited, individuals may be able to receive emergency cash assistance.

In addition, most of the Lane County as well as Eugene Oregon organizations also have information on other federal government program, such as section 8. Case managers can direct renters to other local charities, churches, or non-profits that may have funds to help pay rent, security deposits, or eviction prevention services. So many of the organizations partner with and have relationships with other organizations across Lane County and Eugene Oregon.

If you need rental assistance, it is advised to call as soon as you realize it. If you wait, then it may be too late, or the agencies may run out of funds.
