The 68th Montana Legislative session is underway! Home affordability, if not the number one issue, is one of the top concerns of Montanans. The start of the legislative session means you have an opportunity to find out more about solutions to the home shortage in Montana – and do something about it!
NeighborWorks Montana advocates locally, statewide and at the federal level for policies pertaining to homeownership, financial skill building, sustainable methods, and homes Montanans can afford. Members of our staff also serve on the Montana Housing Coalition board. The Montana Housing Coalition advocates for a coherent state housing policy that creates homes that working families, seniors, and Montanans with disabilities can afford to rent or buy.
