Apply for the Oregon Worker Relief Fund

The Oregon Worker Relief Fund provides financial support directly to Oregonians who have lost their jobs and are ineligible for Unemployment Insurance and federal stimulus relief due to their immigration status, and are now experiencing economic hardship. APANO is a partner organization helping Asian and Pacific Islander Oregon workers apply for these funds.

For more background, visit the Oregon Worker Relief Fund website here. You can also make a donation to support the fund.

How can I apply for the Oregon Worker Relief Fund or the Quarantine Fund?

  1. Start by calling (888) 274-7292
    You can tell them what language you’d prefer to speak in
  2. You will speak with a call center agent who will ask for biographical information to ensure your place on the waiting list
    It is important to have identification on hand
  3. At the end of the waiting list application you will be given an Identification number with which you can review your place on the waiting list on our website. You will receive a text with that information.
  4. You will have to wait for a period of time, we ask for your patience. Eventually your case will be assigned to a browser that will call you to schedule your application for any of the funds. You only need to call once. Once you have your ID number it is a matter of waiting and keeping an eye on your status.

REMEMBER that this whole process is free. You should not pay ANYTHING during this process.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
