The Missoula City Council adopted a comprehensive city-wide Housing Policy, entitled "A Place to Call Home: Meeting Missoula's Housing Needs" on June 24, 2019. Housing Policy aims to create a cohesive policy and program approach in the city to minimize barriers and provide financial incentives where possible to promote the production and preservation of diverse, healthy, and safe homes that all Missoulians can afford.
Homes Build Strong Communities. By providing safe and healthy housing with a diversity of home types and affordability levels, we can support childhood educational success, enable Missoulians to improve our circumstances in the community, support individual and community health, and allow for a robust and thriving local economy.
When projects come before City Council that align with the goals and strategies in Housing Policy, the Director of Housing & Community Development offers comments to Council supporting those projects.
