From guidance on applying for un-employment to assistance for small businesses, the city has developed several overlapping strategies and programs to address the needs of people impacted by COVID-19 in our community.
Hotline Provides Eviction Information
A hotline is available to address questions on the moratorium on evictions in order to address the most current and urgent rental housing needs of Beaverton community members. Staff are committed to returning correspondence within 24 hours. Call 503-629-6427 or email covidhousinginfo@BeavertonOregon.gov. Information is available in Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese, and Arabic.

Unemployment Assistance Available
The city is also working in partnership with Worksystems to provide a hotline for unemployment assistance. The hotline is staffed from 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 1-5 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Call 503-765-9538 to access the hotline. Assistance is available in English and Spanish, with other languages available through a language access line. Services provided include general assistance related to workforce system services and other resources (childcare, food assistance, housing, etc.), unemployment insurance information and support, information related to filing an unemployment claim, help with understanding new rule changes under COVID-19, remote TriMet Low-Income Fare Enrollment, job availability information, and information about applying for SNAP benefits.
