The Montana Department of Commerce is reminding people that they have until next Tuesday to apply for help with their housing costs during COVID-19.

The Emergency Housing Assistance Program is intended for people who have lost income due to the pandemic.

For those who are eligible, it will cover part of the cost of rent or mortgage payments.

It’s open both to new applicants, and to those who need additional assistance for November and December.

The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

So far, leaders say they’ve provided housing assistance to nearly 18,000 renters and homeowners around the state - totaling about 5.4 million dollars.
