This moratorium is a first step in trying to alleviate some of the burden felt by many Portlanders during this emergency, Mayor Wheeler and the City of Portland are having conversations with banks, lending institutions and state and federal partners to ensure an equitable outcome for everyone within the economic cycle affected by the eviction moratorium. We will post information about federal actions to support businesses and property owners in the next post.
Mayor Wheeler and Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury are doing amazing work on multiple fronts. They are also working to support people experiencing houselessness and prioritizing urgent needs.
While we are working remotely, my staff and I will post updates as we become aware of them. I recognize that lack of information is causing anxiety. It’s been a week since the State of Emergency was declared, and there’s a lot we don’t know. What we do know, is that everyone staying home to the extent possible is the best way for each of us to help. Thank you for doing your part. #pdxCOVID19 #WeGotThisPDX
