I moved from Maine to Oregon last November, and applied for benefits (food stamps, TANF, and OHP medical) within a week of arriving. My reason was essentially to force the State of OR to establish a CS order, which is automatically set in motion when a parent applies for benefits.
I had no issues with receiving any benefits. They wanted the regular documentations, of course. I told them I just moved here, am separated, need help. Shouldnt be a problem for you. Sec 8 here is closed, though there are subsidized housing units that you can sign on waiting lists for.
Good luck...what area of Oregon are you moving to?
