Our Community Development team’s work is guided by what we learn from our Community Needs Assessment. Over the past several years housing affordability has surfaced as a top concern for Southwest Montana. To help residents thrive, HRDC works to preserve and build homes across the housing continuum from homelessness to homeownership.
Together, we work with community leaders to create changes to positively impact our customers’ lives.

For homeownership opportunities developed by the HRDC, we use the Community Land Trust Model to maintain affordability for future generations.

HRDC has been operating with this model since the mid 1990’s for low and moderate income households. HRDC currently holds 51 homes in Bozeman and an additional 10 in Livingston using the Community Land Trust model.
