Fund distributions are prioritized for service workers or those in the gig economy temporarily out of work or working greatly reduced hours seeking assistance with rent/mortgage, utilities, food, etc. All requests must include proof of current or previous employment impacted by COVID-19. Once the form is received, staff will contact you by your preferred method to finish the request. Assistance is limited to a one-time-only maximum payment of $400 per individual. However, submitting a request for assistance is no guarantee that assistance will be provided. For more information about the COVID-19 fund including criteria and limitations, click here (PDF). If you need a hard copy of the form, please call 2-1-1. This fund is currently limited to people employed by entities located in Missoula, Mineral, and Ravalli counties only.
