Helena launches effort aimed at increasing affordable housing

Helena’s city government is beginning an ambitious attempt to address the difficulties of increasing affordable housing. How to achieve one of Mayor Wilmot Collins’ goals — developing new affordable housing — is a question many are attempting to answer in Helena and throughout Montana. The city commission’s stated goal for a meeting Wednesday came from the 2011 Helena Growth Policy, which was to provide” housing that is safe, available, accessible and affordable for all sections of the population.”
