Housing Resources & Partners
Below are resources to find housing, develop housing and partner on community housing solutions. If you don't find what you are looking for or just have questions, please contact us !
Step 1: Determine What You Can Afford
Review assistance programs at Idaho Housing and Finance Association . IHFA offers a step-by-step guide for buying a home in Idaho in addition to low interest rate loans and downpayment assistance for households earning less than $150,000 per year. Sign up for IHFA’s free homeowner education program: Finally Home .
Step 2: Find a Mortgage Lender
Lenders partnering with IHFA can be found through the IHFA search tool (using Rexburg or Idaho Falls)
Step 3: Look for Housing You Can Afford
- Teton Multiple Listing Service - https://www.tetonliving.com/ . The Teton MLS provided by the Teton Board of Realtors can be browsed for most for-sale listings.
- Deed-restricted affordable ownership units are not yet available, but both the Housing Authority and private developers are planning projects now and details on those opportunities - potentially available in 2025 - will be posted here and announced via the TCJHA Newsletter. See the Projects and Programs page for more information.
- Work in Jackson or Teton Village? The Teton County Wyoming Housing Department has affordable home ownership opportunities.
Rental Housing Listings
The Community Resource Center of Teton Valley also provides assistance with locating rentals, negotiating with landlords, help with security deposits, rent and utilities, as well as referral to temporary housing shelters. Idaho Housing and Finance Association provides additional rental assistance, including housing vouchers.
Requests for Qualifications/Proposals
The Housing Authority currently does not have any active RFQ or RFQ advertised, however if you are a developer that is interested in upcoming opportunities to develop an affordable housing project, please contact us to be placed on the RFQ/RFP email list.
Development Incentives & Assistance
- Driggs Density Bonus Incentive. The City of Driggs has adopted a density bonus in their land development code to incentivize developers to include either workforce or affordable housing in their projects or to make an equal-value contribution to the Housing Authority to support development of affordable housing.
- Idaho Housing and Finance manages a variety of developer financing programs for multi-family projects. Look under Project & Business Financing at https://www.idahohousing.com/ .
Occupancy-Restricted Deed Template
TCJHA has approved a voluntary occupancy-restricted deed template that property owners may utilize to record a deed-restriction on their property to ensure that it continues to be used for local housing in perpetuity. This opportunity may be paired with an incentive in the future (similar to programs in Breckenridge, CO and Jackson, WY), but it is currently offered to our partners who believe in the TCJHA mission strongly enough to record a deed-restriction on their own. It is suggested that interested property owners consult with their own legal and financial professionals in using this document, however TCJHA staff can respond to initial questions.
