Montana organization awarded $500K for tiny home village

May 23, 2019

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — A Montana organization has been awarded a $500,000 contract to develop a village of 200-square-foot (18.5-sqare-meter) homes for people who are homeless.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports mortgage company Fannie Mae announced Wednesday that Bozeman-based Human Resource Development Council was among the five winners in a competition looking for innovative proposals addressing affordable housing and health.

The council had announced more than two years ago the goal of building a tiny home village in Bozeman that would offer stable housing as well as job and health services.

Community Development Director Tracy Menuez says the council aims to have something on the ground by the last quarter of the contract’s two-year deadline.

Menuez says the project is still in the design stage.
