New homes set to be available for victims of 2020 Echo Mountain Fire in Oregon

From the Statesman Journal:

Victims of the 2020 Echo Mountain Fire in Lincoln County can apply for new homeownership opportunities specifically for those impacted by the wildfire.

Lincoln County announced it has partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln County, Community Services Consortium and other nonprofits to build at least five homes over the next year with at least two ready to live in by June for victims of the wildfire, according to a news release.

Anyone who can be verified as having lost their home in the Echo Mountain Fire that has not yet been able to rebuild is eligible. This includes “those who owned the primary home on a piece of property, those who lived in a secondary home on property owned by a friend or family member, those who owned a manufactured unit in a park where they rented the pad, and those who rented a home of any kind”.

Those with questions can contact Heather Johnson at the Community Services Consortium at or 458-233-3464.
