Please note: These resources are primarily aimed at low-income tenants. If you are a landlord seeking information, please also see the Oregon State Bar Landlord and Tenant Resources page.
If a neighbor, on-site manager, maintenance worker or someone else on the property has used a racial slur against you, made you feel uncomfortable or unwelcome because of your gender, race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, or disability, you can consult this packet for how to respond to discrimination.
A new state law regarding tenant application screenings and protections against discrimination on the basis of certain criminal history is in effect as of January 1st, 2022. Read the PDF for more information.
