MAKING essential, Affordable housing is what we do. As a not-for-profit housing developer, the Jackson Hole Community Housing Trust is building homes for people in our community who make valuable contributions, but cannot afford to live here. This isn't about expanding our town, but about making room for people who we rely on every day. This is an issue that impacts everything we care about. Our goal is simple - to develop quality homes so that firefighters, plumbers, teachers, guides and those who contribute to our quality of life have stable housing that enables them to stay. Help us conserve our community and show our valued workforce we can and will make ROOM.

What makes us different

We leverage private philanthropy and public subsidies to build truly Affordable homes for people who make less than 120% AMI (area median income).

We have housed 656 people since 1991 and 210 in just the last 5 years. 

We have built nine Affordable home neighborhoods, manage 33 rental homes, maintaining average rental rates at 50% below market rate.

We are a developer.  We are responsible for the planning, construction, and management of each home we build.

We operate with non-profit overhead and do not collect a developer fee for any of our projects.

Any project savings are reinvested directly back into the project on material upgrades to ensure long-term durability of the home.
