MDOC awards nearly $2,000,000 for projects
The Montana Department of Commerce has awarded nearly $2,000,000 in funds for projects in Lewis and Clark County.
The MDOC is providing funding for 3 different housing projects. These projects include the construction of a Westmont group home for adults with developmental and physical disabilities, a preliminary architecture report for the Serendipity Apartments, and the rehabilitation the historic YWCA building. MDOC Communications Director Marissa Kozel says the contribution will greatly impact the county.
Kozel says, "It hits in many different areas. It's about affordable housing. It's about housing. And there's some at-risk populations that will be helped and will definitely be affected by this. But it will also help the general population because housing is such a basic need."
More than half of the money will be going toward the YWCA project.
