On Monday June 24, 2013 Blackfeet Housing despite some rainy weather held a ground breaking ceremony to commemorate the beginning of a new Low-Income Housing Tax Credit development (Blackfeet Homes #5). This is the fifth Tax Credit project to enter the development stage. Twenty-Four new homes will be built by BH then occupied by local families. The construction site is located on the land between the recently built North Country Estates and Log Homes.
Due to weather the ceremony was moved in to the BH conference room. Things began with a prayer by Clyde Heavy Runner then many other speakers stepped up to the podium to share info about this new mission. Afterward the group made their way out to the job site. The weather had begun to clear, offering a look at the beautiful view some deserving families will soon have from their new homes.
Blackfeet Housing would like to thank the BH board, our investors, employees, the Montana Board of Housing, Travois Inc., and everyone else who had a part in bringing this endeavor together. As our community grows, the need for housing grows. Blackfeet Housing continues to work towards addressing those needs, providing decent, safe, affordable housing for the Blackfeet People. Applications and the requirements are available at the BH Main Office. Staff is also available to help with the application process. For more information you can call 406-338-5031.
