(As of Feb. 15, 2021, unless otherwise noted)

Housing Assistance:

  • Nearly $1.4 million in grants approved for housing repairs or replacement for 234 homeowners.
  • $620,678 in grants have been approved for personal property, transportation and other disaster-related serious needs for 283 applicants.
  • 708 home inspections have been issued with 99 percent completed.

Direct Temporary Housing

  • Marion is one of five Oregon counties approved to participate in FEMA’s Direct Temporary Housing Program including: Jackson, Lane, Lincoln, Linn and Marion Counties.
  • Qualified Linn and Marion County survivors and their families continue to be licensed into temporary housing units on a site in Mill City built for that purpose. The remaining families will be licensed in as soon as the installation of their units is complete, which includes pouring asphalt to pave two handicap accessible ramps.
  • Survivor housing units are chosen by FEMA based on the survivor family composition and needs, as well as to ensure that requirements for access or functional needs are met.
  • Ongoing participation in the program, which can last until March 2022, depends on each survivor’s efforts to find a permanent housing solution and following the rules established by the park and FEMA.

Public Assistance

•           As of Feb. 12, disaster-wide, FEMA has obligated 42 Performance Work Statements and more than $146 million in Public Assistance funding
