Courtyard Apartments, is a 32-unit affordable housing complex that underwent a $4.8 million update to the property. The newly rehabilitated property held its grand opening on May 1, 2019. Montana Lt. Governor Mike Cooney and state Commerce Director Tara Rice were in Kalispell for the ceremony, along with other local dignitaries. Beginning as a 1994 partnership between the City of Kalispell and nonprofit Community Action Partnership, Courtyard Apartments provides rental housing for households earning 60% or less of area median income. In addition, eight of the units provide increased affordability for people with long-term disabilities through Montana Housing’s 811 rental assistance program. Courtyard’s rents will remain affordable for at least another 46 years as a result of the renovation. Upgrades include installation of new flooring, Energy Star appliances, cabinets, windows, new roofing, new siding and other improvements to improve accessibility. A heat recovery ventilator was also installed for indoor air quality.
