  • Improve the supply of affordable housing,
  • Assist with public improvements, and
  • Fund eligible public services.

    We want to hear from you!


    Missoula is submitting its end-of-the-year report, or its Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report, to the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), and we want to hear from you.

    By offering your feedback on the report and the programs we fund, you give HUD important context about our community and our housing priorities for future years! You can review the draft document in the "Documents" widget on this page. Public comments on the City’s proposed activities submitted by September 26, 2022, will be included in the final version of the annual CAPER submitted to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

    Background

    As stated above, the City of Missoula receives grant funds annually from the United States Office of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These funds come through two separate funding streams: the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME). The city awards these grant funds on a competitive basis to local projects that can address local and federal objectives, which include expanding the supply of housing available to low-income families and individuals, consumer housing programs, and supporting our homeless service providers.

    The public comment draft of the Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report (CAPER) for the City of Missoula's HUD funds is now available for your review and comment. You can view the draft document here.

    Take a look and let us know what you think about the projects we funded last year and the outcomes they reported.

    Did we focus on the right projects? Are we supporting Missoula’s priorities? Let us know by commenting in the CAPER forum tab, or by emailing Karen or Kendra. Public comments on the City’s proposed activities submitted by September 26, 2022, will be included in the final version of the annual CAPER submitted to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

    In addition to the report, you can watch a special presentation of the outcomes during the regularly scheduled Council meeting on Monday, Sept 19, 2022.

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

    The City of Missoula awards approximately $500,000 annually in federal CDBG funds to housing and community development projects and approximately $300,000 in federal HOME funds to housing projects that assist low- to moderate-income Missoulians secure safe and affordable homes.

    We have updated the Program Year 2022 Annual Action Plan to include activities it will undertake with Community Development Block Grant funds for Public Facilities and Infrastructure and with Home Investment Partnership Program funds for Affordable Housing. As a requirement of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for this funding, Community Development must publish these changes for a 30-day comment period.

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

    Comments are welcomed and encouraged, and all comments submitted by August 23, 2022, will be included in the final version of the plan submitted to HUD. Please submit comments in the Forum (accessed below) or by contacting us directly (contact info in sidebar).

  • Public Comment Open for PY21 Action Plan Substantial Amendment

    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

    Last year (Program Year 2021), Homeword applied for and was approved for a $500,000 CDBG grant to help support the Navigation Center, which is a part of the larger Trinity Apartment project.

    The Navigation Center will be located at the Mullan site to provide access to supportive services that will work with the programs already in place to help divert people from unnecessary hospitalization or incarceration and help combat chronic homelessness for the people that experience those challenges.

    However, before any contract was signed, Homeword notified the City that they were able to secure additional funding from another source, and therefore no longer needed the CDBG funds. City policy, however, requires that whenever there’s a significant change in funding or projects, we must publish the amendment, as well as solicit comments. You can find the report in the Documents sidebar.

    Comments are welcomed and encouraged. You can submit comments in the Forum (accessed above).

    A public hearing before City Council is tentatively scheduled for Monday, June 6, 2022.
