We want to hear from you - here’s your chance to influence where federal dollars are spent in our community!

An updated draft of the Allocation Plan associated with the HOME-American Rescue Plan is available to view now. This report primarily reviews the gaps and needs facing the Missoula community, and no project has been chosen for funding yet.

You can view the report here. It can also be found in the “Documents” sidebar.

Comments are welcomed and encouraged through 10/28/22. You can submit comments in the forum below!


What is HOME-ARP?

In 2021, the City of Missoula received $1.3 million in HOME-ARP funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. (HOME stands for the HOME Investment Partnership Program, and ARP is the American Rescue Plan).

HOME-ARP dollars will primarily be used to address homelessness and supportive service needs in our community. This means we can fund things like developing additional rental housing, homeless shelters or transitional housing, and services that support our community like childcare, job training, housing search & counseling services, among others.

These funds, however, are restricted for use to benefit certain populations. These populations include those who are:

  • experiencing homelessness,
  • fleeing or attempting to flee domestic violence in all its forms,
  • veterans, and
  • those at-risk of homelessness, which can include those who are living in poverty, those who have moved 2 or more times due to economic reasons, or those who are paying more than 50% of their income on housing.


The Community Development division of Community Planning, Development and Innovation is exploring potential uses for these HOME-ARP funds.


In order to develop effective, community-based solutions we need to hear from residents about ideas and recommendations to influence the use of these funds.
