How to Apply

How do I apply with MHA?

If you are interested in applying for any of MHA’s subsidized housing programs, rental assistance programs, or homeless programs, the first step is attending an MHA mandatory orientation. If you don’t live in Missoula, you can download a paper application with the links below. Paper applications only function as an alternative for individuals unable to attend an MHA orientation. You are encouraged to attend an orientation if at all possible.  If you do not live in Missoula, please contact our staff to request a paper application.

What does the orientation consist of?

Orientation is a paperless application that gives you more information about the rental assistance programs as well as other MHA programs. If you attend an orientation, your name will be added to the MHA waiting list that same day.

When can I attend orientation?

Orientations are held every Tuesday and Wednesday (except for federal and state holidays).  Tuesday and Wednesday orientations are held at the main MHA office (1235 34th street). Tuesday’s orientation is held at 5:15 pm; Wednesday’s is at noon. Please remember to bring a government issued photo ID with you. We are closed on Government Holidays.

Now that I’m on the waiting list, what do I do?

MHA recommends that you keep in contact with us by calling in about three times a year. When you call in, our Admissions Technician (ext 113) can give you a status update over the phone. If your name comes to the top of the list, you will be notified by mail. This makes it extremely important for families on the waiting list to alert MHA of any change in contact information. For more information, please call (406) 549-4113.
