BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - As federal funding shifts away from transitional housing programs, a Bozeman homeless shelter is closing its doors.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/294KCvh ) that the Human Resource Development Council’s Amos House is closing Thursday after years of providing temporary accommodations to homeless residents of Bozeman.

The Amos House had previously been funded in large part by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development but HRDC officials say the HUD has begun to pull funding from mid-term shelters in favor of rapid re-housing models that aim to get homeless people directly into permanent housing of their own.

In addition to the decreased federal funding, the Amos House also needs $35,000 in sewer repairs. HRDC officials aren’t sure what to do with the space, but hope to repurpose it for similar programs if the repairs can be made.
