SALEM, Ore. – In response to the devastation caused by Oregon wildfires and straight-line winds beginning Sept. 7 and continuing, FEMA has extended the period for soliciting property owners to participate in Multi-Family Lease and Repair (MLR). With MLR, multiple firm-fixed priced contracts may be awarded to provide housing assistance to affected families.

Under MLR, FEMA is seeking owners with properties previously used as multi-family rental housing (3 or more available units), that with financial assistance, could be quickly repaired to local, state and federal codes and standards, and offered as temporary housing for FEMA applicants.

This request for information is not a request for quotes. Responses to this notification will be used to determine which properties meet MLR criteria and provide the timeliest, most cost-effective means of providing direct assistance to eligible disaster survivors.

For the complete information on this MLR Request for Information, visit

All responses must be in writing and submitted via email to and received no later than 1 p.m. PST Nov. 4, 2020


Disaster recovery assistance is available without regard to race, color, religion, nationality, sex, age, disability, English proficiency or economic status. If you or someone you know has been discriminated against, call FEMA toll-free at 800-621-3362 (TTY 800-462-7585). Those who use a Relay service such as a videophone, InnoCaption or CapTel should update FEMA with their assigned number for that service. They should be aware phone calls from FEMA may come from an unidentified number. Multilingual operators are available. (Press 2 for Spanish)

Disaster survivors affected by the Oregon wildfires and straight-line winds can also get personalized mitigation advice to repair and rebuild safer and stronger from a FEMA Mitigation Specialist. For information on how to rebuild safer and stronger or to inquire as to your new flood risk following a fire near you, email, a FEMA Hazard Mitigation specialist will respond survivor inquiries.
