HHA received funding through HUD’s Public Housing Capital Fund Education and Training Community Facilities (CFCF) program and was one of only ten housing authorities across the country selected for this funding. HHA partnered with a number of local agencies to leverage resources and work collaboratively to meet some of the greatest community needs in Montana’s capital city.
The building achieved the highest possible Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating (Platinum status) for new construction. Buildings attaining this level of efficiency are considered among the greenest in the world.

The HLC (located at 940 N.

Along with these larger rooms are two offices occupied by Florence Crittenton and Career Training Institute. Each community provider shares an industrial-size kitchen. Lastly, the HLC offers a community room that is available to interested parties for agency training space, group meetings, etc. If you would like to host a function in this state-of-the-art community space, please contact Justin Delli Bovi at (406) 442-7970 x112 or firstname.lastname@example.org with reservation requests.
