There’s no better place to live, work, and play than Montana. Building a successful life here starts with having an affordable and accessible place to call home. Still, for many Montanans finding a stable home can come with barriers. We know families are encountering rising housing costs, a low supply of affordable apartments, and housing choice barriers. Every day our teams here at the Montana Department of Commerce are working to break down these barriers and make access to safe housing affordable and accessible.

“Every Montanan deserves a safe and healthy place to call home,” Governor Bullock said. “We know that kids do better in school when they have a stable home. We know adults will have a better chance at getting to work every morning when they know they’ll make rent and have a community of support. And we know that towns in Montana do better when their workers can afford to live where the jobs are.”
