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. Click here to learn more about the residential moratorium on evictions.

Housing Implementation

Beaverton is one of the region’s fastest growing communities. It is also one of the most diverse communities in the Portland metropolitan region. The City of Beaverton is committed to ensuring all of its residents have appropriate housing. It has therefore created an inter-department team to create a Housing Implementation Strategy. The team has created a plan with details on how the city intends to achieve its housing goals which include downtown revitalization, housing affordability trends, and homelessness.
