Habitat for Humanity broke ground Wednesday morning on two new duplexes that will house four families in Belgrade.
The new duplexes are being built in the Skyscape subdivision. The organization is paying for this project through a grant they received from Montana’s Department of Housing and Urban Development. Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to provide affordable options for its partner families in the Gallatin Valley so that their monthly housing payment is less than a third of their monthly income.
“These are families that are your secretaries, receptionist, your bookkeepers, and some of the businesses in the Valley, and who are homeowner ready. They’ve gone to homebuyers’ class through HRDC,” said Dave Magistrelli, executive director for Habitat for Humanity of Gallatin Valley.
The organization hopes to start another project in Ennis after this construction is completed in late summer of 2019.
