The Montana Housing Partnership Conference is being held this week in Helena. The focus of the gathering is on the future of housing in Montana following the legislative session.
The more than 275 attendees will discuss a wide range of topics, including affordable housing, homelessness, and the impact of federal funding.
Speakers are expected to focus on the importance of collaboration between state and local government agencies, non-profits, and private developers to address the state's housing needs. Attendees will also explore potential solutions, such as increasing access to funding for affordable housing, expanding homeownership programs, and developing more sustainable and energy-efficient housing.
The conference runs through Wednesday.
