Housing Authorities in Billings, Great Falls, Missoula, Helena, Butte, Anaconda, Sidney, Glasgow, Whitefish, and Glendive received the grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to help develop, finance, and modernize public housing developments in their cities.

  • Housing Authority of Butte - $632,147

  • Housing Authority of Glasgow - $152,472
  • Whitefish Housing Authority - $91,797

Tester has been a strong supporter of expanding affordable housing in Montana and helped secure funding for the grants through his role on the Senate Appropriations Committee.
