On Friday, U.S. Senator Jon Tester stands next to Cameron Weninger, 24, one of the new owners of the home project built by NeighborWorks owner Great Falls, at Weninger's new home.

Great Falls will welcome 10 new owners through the NeighborWorks Great Falls Owner Built Homes program. U.S. Senator Jon Tester attended an event Friday at one of the newly built homes touting the program’s success and discussed the ongoing housing crisis both in the city and across the state.

“I have to be honest with you when I walked into the house, I thought, you know, just another house,” Tester said at the top of his remarks. “But that’s not it, just look around you. It’s damn nice.

Cascade County is expected to need 450 new homes per year for the next 10 years, about 190 rental units and 250 owner units, according to housing study produced by Great Falls Development Authority earlier this year.
