The search for home: HRDC without land for tiny home village  Oct. 27th, 2019

More than two years after announcing plans to build Montana’s first tiny home village, a Bozeman nonprofit is still searching for where to put it.

Human Resource Development Council recently bought land at 206 E. Griffin Dr., to build a collection of tiny homes for people who have chronically been homeless along with Bozeman’s first year-round shelter.

But that spot’s not going to work because the infrastructure for the village won’t be there in time, said Tracy Menuez, associate director of HRDC. The nonprofit has a new two-year deadline to get its first 12 tiny homes built as part of a recent $500,000 contract award from mortgage association Fannie Mae.
