Housing Nonprofit Searching for Land Partnership

Before more than 100 individuals were told to move out of their rooms at the FairBridge Inn and Suites in February, displacing many of them and drawing outcry from the community, Cassidy Kipp of Community Action Partnership of Northwest Montana (CAPNM) had already been receiving stacks of applications from people in desperate need of housing.

With a rental vacancy rate hovering just above 0%, Kipp has seen a 65% increase in the number of applicants with kids over the last 90 days.
