Montana Housing Coalition plans to take affordable housing ideas to the Legislature

Montana Housing Coalition

Affordable housing has always been an issue in Montana. It seems to have taken on added importance during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the Montana Housing Coalition, since 1990, Montana rents have increased by 26% compared to 16% nationally, homeownership rates in the Treasure State have dropped from 70% to 67% since 2006, and nearly 30,000 Montana homes are in poor or very poor condition.

The MHC is a statewide policy making group of developers, communities. agencies, and others dedicated to changing those statistics. One place they plan to be heard is the 2021 Legislature, starting with an effort to increase the coal tax loan fund by $15 million.
