Wildfires are still burning hundreds of thousands of acres of Oregon’s lush greenery. Under the major disaster declaration requested by Oregon Governor Kate Brown, parts of the state can receive public assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This includes emergency lodging for thousands of displaced evacuees in Oregon.
During a disaster declaration, the Emergency Lodging Assistance (ELA) Program can reimburse people for temporary housing. FEMA covers lodging for approved evacuees at hotels that participate in the program.
Hotels currently housing people displaced by the wildfires can learn more about the Emergency Lodging Assistance Program. Learn how to enroll, details on evacuee qualifications, billing and more. You can also contact the Corporate Lodging Consultants support center at email@example.com or call (866) 545-9865.
Individuals and businesses affected by wildfires can apply for assistance by registering online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by calling 1-800-621-3362 or 1-800-462-7585 TTY.
