The program provides rent and utility assistance to Montanans who have been financially impacted, directly or indirectly, by the COVID-19 pandemic. Renters can apply directly for rental and utility assistance, and landlords can apply on behalf of renters so long as the application includes the renter’s co-signature and required documentation.
Good Samaritan is a walk-in location for ERA and you can schedule an appointment online or by phone at Our Place
How much assistance can I receive for my rent or utilities?

How many months can I receive assistance for my rent or utilities?
Eligible households can receive assistance for rent and utilities, including past due dating back to April 2020 and future owed, for up to 12 months.
