Montgomery County DHS Emergency Assistance Relief Payment

Recognizing that the COVID-19 pandemic is causing an unprecedented financial hardship for many Montgomery County residents, the Emergency Assistance Relief Payment is a program that provides immediate financial assistance to households in need. While the need is great, this program seeks to fill the gaps for those who are not eligible or who will not benefit directly from the federal or state COVID-19 aid.

CareerCatchers is a referral partner that can refer clients to a DHS partner. The DHS partner will help eligible residents apply for assistance
