Housing Policy

City of Missoula 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.

Housing Policy Vision

Homes build strong communities.

  • Safe and healthy homes are the foundation of childhood educational success.

  • A diversity of home types and affordability levels allow for a robust and thriving local economy.

  • Safe and healthy homes support individual and community health.

  • Access to homes we can afford enables Missoulians to improve our circumstances and thrive in our community.

Housing Policy Steering Committee

In December of 2017 Mayor Engen invited a diverse group of citizen stakeholders to inform HCDin the development of a guiding framework and broad based strategies to address housing supply and attainability.
