Established 1981

The Rockville Emergency Assistance Program (REAP) provides emergency assistance to individuals and families living in Rockville who are facing a financial crisis. REAP provides direct financial resources to help Rockville residents avoid eviction or utility termination, or to obtain needed medications or medical procedures.

REAP provides referrals to Montgomery County residents for local food banks, clothing centers, vision and dental clinics, and computer resources. The program also offers information about other services that are available to residents.

Our clients  include the working poor, people with disabilities, older adults, unemployed, or those experiencing homelessness.


Financial Assistance

Montgomery County residents facing eviction or utility termination due to a financial crisis, should first call 

Montgomery County Health and Human Services (HHS), 240-777-4550.

Once a household has exhausted the assistance available through HHS, they are referred to the Emergency Assistance Program that covers their residential location. REAP assists Rockville residents living in zip codes 20850, 20851, 20852, 20853, 20854, and 20855 with a referral from HHS. 

For Rockville residents who need assistance to pay for necessary prescriptions or medical procedures, contact REAP.


Referral assistance is open to Montgomery County residents. Contact REAP to find out what is required for receiving a referral for food, clothing, dental or vision care, or computers.
