What We Do
The Southwest Montana Community Housing Trust is a program of HRDC that utilizes the Community Land Trust Model to maintain affordability for future generations.
To help residents thrive, HRDC works to preserve and build homes across the housing continuum, from homelessness to homeownership. We know the Community Land Trust Model benefits the whole community by creating opportunities for locals to put down roots and build economic and social stability across the region. CLT homes provide a strong foundation for households earning moderate incomes from diverse fields needed to keep our local economy running, such as caregiving, education, the public sector, and small business or providing security in retirement.
What is a Community Land Trust?
This short video from our partners at Grounded Solutions explains the concept of Community Land Trust. HRDC has been operating with this model since the mid 1990’s for low and moderate income households. HRDC currently holds 51 homes in Bozeman and an additional 10 in Livingston using the Community Land Trust model.
