Oregon businesses who missed the opportunity to apply for SAIF’s coronavirus worker safety fund have a second chance after the fund reopened with an additional $15 million. The fund was closed five business days after its launch on March 31 after more than 1,300 businesses applied and used the initial $10 million available. The fund is designed to support employee safety, reduce injuries, and decrease exposures by helping businesses impacted by the coronavirus. More than 53,000 SAIF policyholders across the state are eligible for funds. SAIF recommends policyholders submit applications as soon as possible, given how quickly the initial funding was exhausted. The agency does not anticipate additional funding. SAIF policyholders who previously applied do not need to apply again, as applications are still being processed from the first round of funding.
