Tenant Relocation Assistance Ordinance # 188219

On Feb. 2, 2017, Portland City Council passed a milestone that mandates relocation assistance for involuntarily displaced tenants. Ordinance 188219 requires landlords to provide relocation assistance if they enact no-cause evictions or increase rent by 10 percent or more in a 12-month period. The amount tenants can receive depends on the size of their living space ($2,900 for a studio, $3,300 for one-bedroom units, $4,200 for two-bedroom units, and $4,500 for three-bedroom units or larger).
