    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.

    City of Bozeman Strategic Plan

    The City Commission has identified Affordable Housing as one of it's strategic goals. 

    4.5 Housing and Transportation Choices - Vigorously encourage, through a wide variety of actions, the development of sustainable and lasting housing options for under-served individuals and families and improve mobility options that accommodate all travel modes.

    a) Enhance Non-motorized Transportation.

    b) Develop a Comprehensive Affordable Housing Action Plan that includes, but is not limited to:

    1. Mandates the creation of affordable housing across all dwelling unit types.

    2. Provides prescribed flexibility in the manner in which the mandate can be accomplished. 

    3. Provides a substantial, broad-based and reliable source of funding for the construction of affordable housing and for affordable housing loans.
