Funding Guidelines & Documents

Consolidated Plan 2019-2023

The Consolidated Plan is designed to help the City of Missoula assess our affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions. The plan serves as a framework to identify housing and community development priorities and helps focus our funding.

Community Needs Assessment Report

At the start of our funding cycle, Community Development solicits public input to determine the most urgent community needs. The information provided via surveys, outreach, and/or public meetings guides how we distribute funds to assist low- and moderate-income residents of our community.

Program Year 2021 Action Plan

Our Annual Action Plan is an annual report that provides a summary of the actions, activities, and resources that will be used each year to address priority needs and specific goals identified in the Consolidated Plan and the annual community needs assessment.

Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER)  

Our CAPER reports on accomplishments and progress toward both Consolidated Plan and the associated year’s Annual Action Plan goals. 

Affordable Housing Trust Fund Annual Allocation Plan 2022

Based on the information, feedback, and data collected through the housing assessment report and community needs assessment, an Annual Allocation Plan will be produced, setting goals for the upcoming fiscal year for Trust Fund investments. Once finalized, the Annual Allocation Plan will be approved by the Affordable Housing Resident Oversight Committee.

Annual Housing Assessment Report

Each year, Community Development produces a report tracking housing indicators, population statistics, and market information to guide annual priorities for funding. This report will also include information about outcomes achieved in the prior year through Trust Fund investments.

 Written comments on each of the above reports are solicited every year, and can be provided year-round by emailing Grants and Affordable Housing Trust Fund staff.
