When Oregon families lose their homes in a wildfire, they can now get a little help rebuilding. The new “Wildfire Damage Housing Relief Account” is open.
Oregon Representative Mike McLane calls it a way to “fill the gap” when families lose everything to wildfire. He sponsored House Bill 3148 to provide assistance in the form of small grants to those eligible.
The money, $5,000 per household, is meant to supplement insurance and personal savings. Eligibility is based on income levels.
