The Oregon Legislature updated the program criteria in the 2015 and 2017 sessions. The following links outline the criteria for these time periods:

  2. Beginning January 1, 2016 (Tax Years 2016 and 2017)
  3. Beginning January 1, 2018 (Tax Years 2018, 2019, 2020, & 2021)

How soon after I submit my application or renewal can I expect a response?

You can expect to receive confirmation of your eligibility within six weeks (but probably sooner) during the months of January, February, and March and within two weeks the rest of the year.
