Commercial Rent Relief Program

FYI – State program funding available

the Oregon Legislative Emergency Board on January 8, 2021, allocated $100 million to fund a new Commercial Rent Relief Program to provide financial assistance to small businesses and landlords adversely affected by economic conditions as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program will be administered by Business Oregon in two rounds and will:

a.       Target tenant businesses with 100 or less Employees who are in lease payment arrears due to COVID-19.

b.       Require property owner participation and includes additional protections for tenants, such as non-eviction clauses, and a waiver of penalties and interest.

c.       Award grants through a random lottery process.

The application opens statewide on Monday, March 8 and the deadline to apply is Monday, March 22. The second round will open in April and unselected applications from the first round will carry over for consideration in the second round. More information about the program including eligibility criteria may be found here:



Bring a grocery store to Hayden Island

The Hayden Island community and surrounding trade area supported Safeway for 57 years (1962 through 2018). The community was very disappointed with Safeway’s departure. The majority of residents, boaters, and businesses on the island as well as surrounding neighborhoods are interested in bringing back a neighborhood grocery store.

We believe that Hayden Island and the surrounding trade area is capable of supporting a grocery story on the island. Sign our petition, thus agreeing that you are willing to support a neighborhood grocer on Hayden Island. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A RESIDENT OF OREGON. THIS IS NOT A VOTING PETITION Please also type your zip code in the comment section. Grocers will be interested in the width of the market area around Hayden Island. ​Questions call Joyce Morrelli 503-312-6536 email jemo@windermere.com   Sign up now and have your friends and family over 18 years sign too!!                                     Jantzen-beach.com
