UCAN offers relief payments
United Community Action Network has announced expanded resources to Douglas and Josephine county residents affected by COVID-19. Additional funding has been made available for rent and energy/utility assistance through the Coronavirus Relief Rent Payment Support and COVID Energy/Utility Assistance programs.
Households that live at or below 80% in Area Media Income can contact UCAN to determine eligibility for up to six months of rental credit support, included monies incurred beginning in April. Parties will be asked to provide information on the impact of COVID-19, including loss of employment, loss of childcare and other issues, and a landlord packet will need to be completed to document tenancy.
In addition to current energy assistance funding, COVID Utility Assistance is available to support utility payments and credits.
Screening will occur mostly over the phone, though in person meetings can be scheduled. UCAN asks that only one detailed message with clear contact information be left per program per household.
