GIRL SCOUTS OF MONTANA AND WYOMING

MONTANA EMERGENCY RENTAL ASSISTANCE

The Montana Emergency Rental Assistance program will provide rent and utility assistance to Montanans who have been financially impacted, directly or indirectly, by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Renters will be able to apply directly for rent and utility assistance, and landlords will be able to apply on behalf of renters with the renter’s co-signature and required documentation.

Renters will need to provide income documentation to verify program eligibility. To streamline the application review process, we recommend renters file their 2020 tax return now and have that document available to submit when the program opens for applications.

The program is still being developed, but you can begin preparing for your application using the information provided on this website https://housing.mt.gov/Rental-Housing/Montana-Emergency-Rental-Assistance-Program
