In 2019, Oregon became the eighth state to pass paid leave when the Governor signed HB2005 into law. The Oregon Paid Family and Medical Leave (OPFML) policy will begin in 2023. With funding from the federal DHHS and as part of the Family Self Sufficiency and Stability Research Network, this project studies the OPFML from 2020 to 2025. Specifically looking at three overarching research questions: (1) What are the expected enrollments and what are the barriers to enrollment? (2) How does OPFML affect family economic security and self-sufficiency? (3) How does the OPFML affect participation in the social safety net – TANF, SNAP, EITC?
