Communities in Northcentral Montana (NCM) coordinated to conduct a region-wide visioning and planning project informed by stakeholder input, data and scenario planning, and the region’s first Fair Housing and Equity Assessment (FHEA). Stakeholders in NCM have emphasized the region’s need for housing and the FHEA demonstrates that many residents do not enjoy equal access to affordable, quality housing. This handout summarizes FHEA findings, recommendations, and policies. The FHEA will serve as an informative tool for community development in regional, rural and tribal settings.
