Each year, the City of Missoula awards approximately $500,000 to housing and community development projects that support low-income residents. This money is allocated to the City by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Grant funding is competitive and is awarded to projects that can address local and federal objectives, which include expanding the supply of housing available to low-income families and individuals, eliminating blight, or meeting urgent community development needs as outlined in the annual Community Needs Assessment.
You can learn more about our stated objectives and progress in the following plans and documents:
