The State of Oregon has allocated $10 million from the federal CARES Act funding to offer masks and gloves to qualifying Oregon small businesses. To be eligible for this free personal protective equipment (PPE), the business must meet the following qualifications:
- The Business is headquartered in Oregon and has its principal operations in Oregon.
- If required by Oregon law to be registered with the Oregon Secretary of State to do business in Oregon, the Business is so registered.
- Businesses that do comply with all federal, state and local laws and regulations.
- The Business has 50 or fewer employees.
The PPE will be supplied until resources are exhausted. Businesses that receive supplies must agree to comply with current workplace safety guidelines as outlined by the Governor’s office and the Oregon Health Authority. Stockpiling is discouraged.
