Housing Needs Assessment & Work Plan RFP
The city will be conducting interviews with prospective consultants the week of August 13th. For more information on the process, please contact Matthew Madsen, Affordable Housing Program Manager at 406-582-2953 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Affordable Housing Program
The definition of Affordable is not spending more than 1/3 of your monthly income on housing. For many, this is not possible. As Bozeman continues to grow, the City is working to develop a long-term plan to meet the housing needs of all of its residents. This plan will spur the creation and development of an Affordable Housing Work Plan. The newly created Affordable Housing Program is a division of the Community Development Department.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to fill out the online survey. Due to the overwhelming number of responses, we are closing the survey early so that we can compile all the data.
There will be additional opportunities to get involved as we start the housing needs assessment process so please stay tuned for your chance to give more input as we develop the City of Bozeman's Housing Work Plan.
