Courtyard Apartments renovation completed

May 1, 2019

Montana Lt. Gov. Mike Cooney and state Commerce Director Tara Rice were in Kalispell Tuesday for the grand opening of the Courtyard Apartments, a 32-unit affordable housing complex that underwent a 28,000 for a one-person household. In addition, eight of the units provide increased affordability for people with long-term disabilities, through Montana Housing’s 811 rental assistance program. As a result of the renovation, Courtyard’s rents will remain affordable for at least another 46 years, according to a Montana Department of Commerce press release.

The upgrades included installation of new flooring, Energy Star appliances, cabinets, window, roofs, siding and other improvement to improve accessibility. A heat recovery ventilator was installed for indoor air quality.

Community Action Partnership of Northwest Montana and Rural Community Assistance Corp. collaborated with Mountain Plains Equity Group to put the 2.8 million of earned wages, the Commerce Department said.
