LANE COUNTY, Ore. – The Federal Emergency Management Agency is seeking property management companies to participate in its Direct Lease Program, which will provide temporary housing for wildfire victims.

Under the program, FEMA contracts with property owners to lease existing residential properties that are typically not available to the public -- corporate apartments, vacation rentals, second homes, and more – to FEMA applicants on a temporary basis.

FEMA is mainly looking for companies that do the majority of their business in the county, but all interested property owners are asked to reach out.

Properties must adhere to all codes and standards and be available for at least a year and a half with the option of a lease extension.

The deadline to reach out to participate is noon on Feb. 12. Property owners will need to provide the property name, location, owner name, and a phone number, as well as other relevant information.
