The Red Cross is providing $450 to households whose homes were confirmed to have been destroyed or sustained major damage from the recent wildfires in Oregon. To be eligible, households must meet all of the following requirements:

• Applicant is the head of household and is not listed as a household member on any other Red Cross assistance application.

• Applicant’s primary residence suffered major damage or was destroyed, as verified by Red Cross or another official agency.

• Applicant’s identity and proof of residence details can be verified.
