COVID-19 Emergency Rent and Utility Assistance


Emergency Rent and Utility COVID Program


Montgomery County has been awarded additional rent and utility assistance funding from the federal government. Therefore, beginning Monday, August 7, 2023, the ERUC Program will begin accepting new applicants to the program and allow previously served households to return for recertifications every three months up to 18 months of assistance.

The Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities continues to process applications for:

  1. Clients who were on the waitlist prior to April 1st and have not received any assistance previously.
  2. New & previously served clients who have a current court issued eviction document and/or a utility shut off notice.

Please note that assistance is not guaranteed. Applicants must meet the program’s eligibility requirements that include the current household income status and a COVID-related hardship that occurred during the pandemic (March 13, 2020 – May 11, 2023).

Please contact 211 for further assistance or complete the prescreen form below.
