City of Billings Initiatives

Community Development Division

  • Impacting Poverty via Economic Opportunity and Fair Housing Choice: For too many people, housing choices can be constrained through discrimination, the operation of housing markets, capital investment choices, regional history / geography, and development patterns of the built environment. These factors contribute to segregation, racially concentrated areas of poverty, and unequal access to vital community assets that shape life outcomes and income status. The overall goal of this project is to develop and implement a statewide plan to overcome barriers to housing choice and promote inclusivity. Apply Now!
