Creating a Diverse and Vibrant Missoula  

Through public and private partnerships, the Office of Housing and Community Development invests in the following initiatives:
  • Increase housing options that are affordable to all levels of our community

  • Support economic development opportunities to help our community grow

Fair Housing Survey - Participation Requested

The City of Missoula is partnering with the Montana Department of Commerce, the City of Billings and the City of Great Falls to gather feedback from you that can help us find ways to improve fair housing opportunities.  We would like you to take a few minutes to fill out the survey.  Our goal is to get a sense of what housing issues are most pressing for Montanans in the Missoula area.  We hope that you will help pass on this survey and help us reach as many Montanans as possible.  

Please be aware the survey does end on September 30th.  The answers given are private.  Individual data will not be shared but data may be summarized and shared with other agencies.  Thank you for your time and effort.

2018 Fair Housing Survey


The City of Missoula’s Program Year 2017 DRAFT Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) is now available for public review and comment. The City is required to prepare a CAPER each year which describes program accomplishments for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) programs for the program year ending June 30, 2018.

Public comments on the City’s performance received by September 24, 2018, will be included in the final version of the CAPER to be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Comments may be made in writing to the Missoula Office of Housing & Community Development, 435 Ryman, Missoula, MT, 59802 or via email to mjames@ci.missoula.mt.us. The City of Missoula and the Office of Housing & Community Development welcome comments on its CDBG and HOME activities, Consolidated Plan, and annual Action Plan on a year-round basis.

Copies of the CAPER are available for review at Housing & Community Development’s office at 400 Ryman (main entrance on Pine St.) and can be downloaded here.
