An eviction moratorium passed last year allowed Oregonians not to pay rent to stay housed during the pandemic.

With the lifting of the bans and business restrictions, the prohibitions against evicting tenants and residents for non-payment of rent and mortgage also increase.

A report from Portland State University last year found that up to a third of tenants owed a return rent.

Community advocates say they fear a wave of displacement and increase Homelessness after the moratoria expires.
