Moving Forward Rental Assistance Program
10 Year Plan to End Homelessness for Umatilla County


Beginning July 1, 2018 Households seeking assistance from the Moving Forward Rent Assistance Program will be asked to contact CAPECO by phone or in-person to complete an assessment for Coordinated Entry. CAPECO is the HUB for Coordinated Entry for Umatilla, Morrow, Gilliam and Wheeler Counties. Completing the assessment does not mean housing assistance is available right now, however; it provides a way to determine the right level of services to housing resources to those facing a housing crisis.

Assessments will provided by CAPECO staff Monday-Friday 8 AM-5 PM daily. Staff will notify you when a housing program opportunity becomes available.

If someone is:

  • Living or sleeping outside
  • Staying in a shelter
  • Staying in a vehicle
  • Fleeing or attempting to flee domestic violence
  • Sleeping in a place not meant for human habitation or
  • Exiting an institution where they had resided for up to 90 days and were in a shelter or a place not meant for human habitation immediately prior to entering that institution or
  • Staying in an emergency shelter

Moving Forward Rental Assistance Program

About the Moving Forward Program:

The Moving Forward Program provides households with a temporary rental subsidy. The program utilizes multiple funding streams to provide this assistance and eligibility criteria and subsidy calculation can vary depending on the funds used for each household.

During the time a households receives rental assistance from the Moving Forward Program, the household will work with a case manager toward goals meant to stabilize housing and promote long term financial security. Households will meet with their case manager on at least a monthly basis and will work with case managers to create a budget plan. Case managers will also connect households with community resources and supports as needed.

Most of the funding streams utilized by the Moving Forward Program require the rental unit to pass a HUD Housing Quality Standards Inspection. Please see “A Good Place to Live” for more information.

Moving Forward Program staff work diligently to foster positive relationships with landlords who work with tenants served by the program. Please see our Landlord FAQs for more information about our program, Fair Housing Law in Oregon and Landlord Tenant Law in Oregon.
