Bozeman non-profit award could benefit ‘tiny homes’ to help homeless

BUILD A VILLAGE OF TINY
HOMES IN BOZEMAN JUST
GOT A BIG HELPING HAND. CODY BOYER TAKES A
CLOSER LOOK AT THE
PROJECT.

"WE WERE ABLE TO
KIND OF PUT SOME
EARLY PROGRAM
DESIGNS AND PIECES INTO PLAY AND THIS
FUNDING, OF
COURSE WILL JUST
HELP US EXPAND ON
THAT EFFORT."
FOR HRDC ASSOCIATE
DIRECTOR TRACY
MENUEZ AND THE
REST OF THE NON-
PROFIT — HELP FROM
TINY HOMES LIKE THIS ONE COULD
NOW BE WITHIN
ARM'S REACH. "WE'VE BEEN
WORKING WITH
FANNY MAY ON OUR
SCOPE OF WORK
AND WHAT TYPES OF
DELIVERABLES WE'LL BE ABLE TO
PRODUCE OVER THE
TWO YEAR PERIOD." /
"THIS ONE WAS
REALLY FOCUSED ON
INTERSECTION BETWEEN HEALTHY
HOUSING AND
BETTER
HEALTHCARE
OUTCOMES."
500-THOUSAND DOLLARS — ALONG
WITH A CONTRACT
THAT HAS HRDC
BUILDING 12 TINY
HOMES WITHIN TWO
YEARS… "THIS ISN'T A
CAPITAL
CONTRIBUTION ON
THIS PROGRAM BUT
IT'S ONE OF THE
FIRST TIMES THAT WE'VE REALLY HAD
THE OPPORTUNITY
TO DO SOME
RESEARCH IN
LEARNING AND
REALLY INTENTIONAL PLANNING."
SU "THIS SPOT OFF
OF GRIFFIN AND
ROUSE HERE JUST
NORTH OF TOWN IS A
POTENTIAL SPOT THAT HRDC BOUGHT
THAT COULD PUT A
FEW OF THE HOMES
HERE, BUT THAT
DEPENDS.

IF SO,
THEY COULD PUT AT LEAST 10 HOMES ON
A SPOT LIKE THIS."
"WE MAY OR MAY
NOT USE IT FOR THE
PILOT. WE'RE STILL
TRYING TO DECIDE IF THAT'S THE MOST
APPROPRIATE SITE
FOR OUR PILOT. IT'S
A LARGER SITE THAT
WE'LL HAVE SOME
OTHER FUNCTIONS ON IT, AS WELL."
MENUEZ SAYS
DECIDING WHERE
THE HOMES COULD
GO IS AN IMPORTANT
THING TO THINK ABOUT. INFRASTRUCTURE
ASIDE — EACH ONE
COSTS ABOUT
$10,000 TO BUILD.

null

…WHICH COULD
REALLY HELP THOSE
IN NEED BY GIVING
THEM A PLACE TO
GO. SO WHILE HRDC IS
STILL IN THE
PLANNING
PROCESS… "TO ME, THIS IS THE
PIECE THAT ALLOWS
US TO ACTUALLY
SPEND THE TIME TO
DELIBERATELY
DESIGN A LONG TERM SOLUTION."

THE MODEL OF HOME THAT
YOU SAW IS THE STANDARD
UNIT. H-R-D-C IS WORKING ON A
FULLY ADA-COMPLIANT
MODEL NOW, WHICH
SHOULD BE FINISHED IN
JUNE..
