In July, Big Sky Community Housing Trust became an independent nonprofit located in Big Sky so that we could better respond to the unique housing needs of our community.
A vibrant and stable community has workers that live locally and participate in the community where they work. Our real estate market needs luxury homes as well as affordable living choices for those who work in our grocery stores, hospital, schools, banks, retail shops, resorts, and restaurants. These folks keep our valued services going and make Big Sky enjoyable for all.
Big Sky's housing crisis is not a one-size-fits-all problem, and our solutions require the community's support. BSCHT uses a multipronged approach: creating affordable homeownership opportunities; providing down payment assistance to first-time homebuyers; and working with property owners to convert vacation rentals to long term rentals for locals.
