News $17M in US money available for Montana rental assistance

The program is administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. “This program will help renters who are struggling to make ends meet due to the economic fallout from income,” said U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte, R-Mont., at a press conference in Missoula Tuesday morning. “I’m proud that HUD is working with us to provide rental assistance to our neighbors in need.” Gianforte said he has been working with HUD officials on the program since the beginning of income and hopes it will be up and running soon. “This is a great first step, but we need more funding so we can provide more rental assistance to our neighbors in need,” he said. “We have too many people losing their homes because they can no longer afford their rent or mortgage payments because of income or any other reason. We have too many people who just can’t find housing at all because they don’t have enough money for rent or mortgage payments anymore. That shouldn’t be happening in America today, not when we are still recovering from income or other disasters like hurricanes coming through our state recently.” “I am hopeful that this first step will provide some relief for families who are struggling to make ends meet,” Gianforte continued.” This is an example of how we can work together on an issue like this across party lines and still come together as a community.” In addition to providing rental assistance for household residents, HUD officials said they would also work with local governments on programs to help household residents transition back into their homes after they received rental assistance from HUD if needed and help them get back on their feet if necessary after receiving temporary housing assistance from local governments during income or other disasters like hurricanes coming through our state recently.”
