Oregon Homeowner Legal Assistance (OHLA) Project
The Oregon Homeowner Legal Assistance (OHLA) project provides free or reduced-cost legal services to low- and moderate-income Oregonians whose homeownership is at risk due to economic factors caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Homeowners can apply for legal assistance by calling the toll-free OHLA intake line, 1-855-503-2598. After the intake call, each applicant's case will be screened for case eligibility. Some eligible homeowners will receive services in-house, while others will be referred to volunteer pro bono attorneys for a free initial consultation and services on a reduced-fee basis at an amount acceptable to both attorney and client. Intake interviews are conducted between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Intake staff can assist borrowers in English and other languages using phone-based interpretation services.
