DAYTON – Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, Miami Valley Community Action Partnership (Miami Valley CAP), is taking precautionary measures to protect its customers and staff. In accordance with Governor DeWine’s recommendations to limit face-to-face interactions, in-person appointments will not be available until further notice. The agency will remain open for business and prioritize cases on an emergency need basis.

Beginning Tuesday, March 17 customers may submit applications and required documents via a drop box at our Montgomery, Darke, Greene, and Preble County offices. This mainly applies to customers in need of emergency utility and rent assistance. Customers should call the following numbers before dropping off documentation.

For assistance with the following programs, please call 937-341-5000 – HEAP/PIPP ext. 902; Water/Rent/Emergency Services ext. 903; License Reinstatement/Legal Barriers to Reemployment ext. 904

We are implementing temporary procedures to protect both customers and staff and are hopeful that Montgomery and the other counties we serve will follow Nan Whaley’s proactive approach,” said Lisa Stempler, President and CEO. “We appreciate our customers being flexible as we all work together through this difficult time.”
