Battling Billings’ Housing and Workforce Problem (KULR8-NBC)

Mar 19, 2015

A one stop shop for all potential home buyers, including counseling on home buying and education about the dos and don’ts of owning house, could be a possibility in Billings.

The Home Center asked the City of Billings for $60,000 over three years to help them reach their $125,000 goal.

Ryan Auer, The Home Center’s Campaign Chairman, said rent in Billings is very expensive, sometimes as much as a mortgage payment. He said first-time home buyers, who are currently renting, need the option to have a place where they can go to look into buying a house.

Billings City Council will be discussing this request for money in the next few weeks.

Along the same lines, Billings Works Workforce Council held their 2015 meeting, where they discussed the results of the State of the Workforce Report for Billings.
