Florence Crittenton gets $1.2M grant to help refurbish Cooney campus

INDEPENDENT RECORD

Florence Crittenton Family Services officials said Thursday they have received a $1,278,032 grant from the Montana Department of Commerce, which will be used to refurbish the north and west wings of the top floor of their Cooney campus.

These funds from the commerce department’s housing division are through the Home Investment Partnerships Program, which is a federal block grant program under the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development. It aims to create affordable housing for low-income households, Crittenton officials said. Applications were ranked on geographic diversity and housing needs, affordability and financial feasibility, long-term planning, solution and management, appropriate design and readiness to proceed.

Crittenton’s Executive Director Carrie Krepps said they were thrilled to receive the funds.

“Not only does it push us forward to our goal of renovating our campus, but it is the state’s recognition of the importance of supporting these families facing substance use challenges and the investment in a brighter future for all Montanans,” she said in a news release.
