2. How much is a Relocation Assistance payment?

Relocation Assistance payments are:

  • $2,900 for a studio apartment or Single-Room Occupancy (SRO)
  • $3,300 for a 1-bedroom Dwelling Unit
  • $4,200 for a 2-bedroom Dwelling Unit
  • $4,500 for a Dwelling Unit with 3 or more bedrooms. 

Relocation Assistance payments are given once per Dwelling Unit per Rental Agreement.  When determining Relocation Assistance payments in NON-EXEMPT units, “Dwelling Unit” is defined by state law (see ORS 90.100).  Multiple Tenants who share a Rental Agreement in the same multi-bedroom house are considered to live in ONE multi-bedroom Dwelling Unit.  On the other hand, Tenants who share a house but each rent their bedrooms separately are considered to live in SEPARATE Dwelling Units and each Rental Agreement receives a SEPARATE Relocation Assistance payment.
