Non-Medical Assistance In Kootenai County

Residents of Kootenai County may apply for only "Temporary" non-medical assistance from the county.
The county will consider such applications only when no other alternative is available to the applicant.
The county may offer assistance with payment for the following services:

  • Rent
  • Utilities
  • Indigent Deceased


  • In reviewing all applications, the county will investigate your ability to work, as well as the ability of other adult household members to work
  • You will be required to reimburse the county for any funds expended on your behalf
  • If federal, state or other programs or assistance are available to meet the needs of a household, an eligible applicant must apply for those programs before the county may provide non-medical assistance. If denied such other assistance, the applicant must pursue available administrative appeals for those programs to the final administrative level.


    STEP 1: You must file and sign an application for assistance on an approved Application Form. (Application may be obtained by clicking here). Applications will not be taken over the phone and only applications submitted on the approved application form will be considered. Please use black or blue ink if filling out application in your own hand writing.

    **You must call (208) 446-1880 to schedule an interview.

    STEP 2: You must bring your application with you to the interview. An interview will not be conducted unless you have the completed application with you at the time of your interview. You will not be allowed to use the interview time to complete your application.
