Four Montana communities will receive grants through the Montana Department of Commerce’s HOME Investment Partnerships Program to assist with the development of affordable housing for Montanans.

“Every Montanan should have access to a safe and affordable place to call home,” Montana Department of Commerce Director Pam Haxby-Cote said. “These HOME grants will provide more Montanans with access to an affordable place to live for many years to come.”

The following communities have received HOME Investment Partnerships Program grants:

  • Butte, Public Housing Authority of Butte: $750,000 for construction of the Copper Ridge Apartments which will consist of 32 affordable units.
  • Belgrade, Habitat for Humanity of Gallatin Valley: $750,000 to construct two duplexes in Belgrade to serve four households.
  • Livingston, Homeword Inc: $850,000 to acquire and rehabilitate the Livingston Memorial Hospital into 34 affordable units.
  • Helena, Lewis and Clark County: $277,344 for rehabilitation of the West Mont Farm and Gardens Group Home to serve eight individual adults with developmental disabilities.

The HOME Investment Partnerships Program is the largest federal block grant designed exclusively to create affordable housing for low-income households. Montana’s allocation of HOME funds is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Montana Department of Commerce grants these funds to help local governments respond to the need for adequate, affordable housing for qualified individuals, families, and seniors.
