MEDFORD, Ore. — Access announced on Wednesday that it is now accepting applications from human services agencies and non-profits for rental assistance programs after receiving $805,000 in federal CARES Act funding.

The funds, which are a portion of the award that Access recently received from Oregon Housing and Community Services, are specifically for providing rental help to Jackson County residents who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and response.

Agencies and non-profits who receive the funds are able to offer them to those who have experienced a loss of income, compromised health conditions, are at risk of losing their housing, have been diagnosed or exposed to coronavirus, or have been displaced due to the public health measures instituted to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

"The period for expending funds is March 1, 2020, to December 30, 2020," Access said in a statement. "The program will provide $684,250 in Homeless Prevention assistance and $120,750 for Rapid Re-housing to people who have an 'intent to rent' document."

Organizations that offer these kinds of programs can get an application for the assistance by contacting Access. The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. on Friday, July 10. Awards will be announced by the end of July.


EDIT: A previous version of this article indicated that Access was offering grants directly to residents in danger of losing their housing, but the funds are actually intended for other local agencies and non-profits who offer rental assistance.
