"In Big Sky, New Affordable Housing Program Pays Property Owners to Rent to Locals"
"Shannon Sears has lived in Big Sky for six years, and she’s already moved five times. The 33-year-old works for a title and escrow company, and she also sits on the local chamber of commerce. But ever since she moved to Montana from Texas, finding housing has been difficult.
Sears lost her local housing earlier this year, so she found herself commuting over an hour each way, every day. And she was far from alone: 78% of Big Sky workers commute from outside the area, according to 2018 American Community Survey estimates."
