This page focuses on resources for individuals and households in Washington County. Economic relief resources for businesses can be found at Washington County’s Business Recovery page

When will I receive my stimulus check and how much will it be? Do I have to do anything to apply for it? 

The IRS says the first economic impact payments were issued April 11, with more deposits coming soon. If you filed taxes in 2018 or 2019, you do not have to do anything to receive your payment. If you did not file, you need to fill out a non-filers form. Use the Get My Payment tool from the IRS to track your payment.

I recently became unemployed for COVID-19 related reasons. Do I qualify for unemployment? How do I apply? Is there other assistance available? 

Visit the Oregon Department of Employment’s COVID-19 page for information about unemployment benefits available in Oregon, who qualifies and how to apply.  

The U.S. Department of Labor also has information and resources dealing with COVID-19 related unemployment, paid leave and more.

How can I get food assistance? 

During this hard time, the last thing families should have to worry about is their children being hungry. Help is on the way for families with children who are signed up for free or reduced cost lunch at school. Money will be automatically added to SNAP benefits card, or families will get a debit card in the mail from the state. This benefit is available to all community members who qualify based on income, regardless of immigration status. It will not count toward the public charge rule. If you are NOT already signed up, call your school or apply online.

See our Food Resources Guide in English and Spanish.

For assistance with pet food, visit The Pongo FundFido or Washington County Animal Services
