Our Work in 2024

The Coalition's 2024 work plan focuses on implementing three tools from the 2022 Housing Action Plan: Accessory Dwelling Units, Employer-Assisted Housing Partnerships, and Zoning Reform.


This year's plan builds on the work of our 2022 subcommittees, includes ideas generated by participants in our November 2023 housing discussion, and has been refined by input from the Coalition's Steering Committee and other community partners, like Montana State University Extension, Park County.

HAP Tool #8

Accessory Dwelling Units

The 2022 workforce housing subcommittee recommended facilitating the creation of ADUs. Their endorsement, combined with Montana Senate Bill 528 and the Federal Housing Administration’s ADU lending policy, signals that the time is right to pilot an ADU program.

This year's ADU program has two components: an ADU financing course in April and an ADU workshop for homeowners in the fall.

HAP Tool #2

Employer-Assisted Housing Partnerships

This program will support employers who want to understand and implement demand and/or supply-side strategies to help their current employees access and remain in healthy housing in our community and improve recruitment and retention rates.

The program manager will offer free technical assistance to employers in the five sectors that provide 70% of the county's jobs: professional and business services; education, healthcare, and social assistance; construction; hospitality and leisure; and retail trade.

Tool # 9

Zoning Reform

The coalition will participate in the City’s of Livingston's zoning update, slated to start in June. Our goal is to ensure changes are clear, complementary, and allow for more abundant housing at the sizes and prices our community members need and can afford.
