I Missed Work Due to Heat or Smoke
Financial Relief for Oregon Workers!
Oregon Worker Relief is supporting essential workers and increasing community resilience in our state. By ensuring agricultural workers don’t have to choose between earning a paycheck or protecting their health, Oregon Worker Relief is supporting essential workers and keeping our communities safe.

To qualify, the heat or smoke must reach certain risk levels:
- The temperature must reach 90 degrees or higher in your residence or workplace.
