Habitat for Humanity wants to know about your housing situation

Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area is looking for some new data.

“We have always been really proud to say we help probably the lowest income bracket of our community,” said Wendy Martinez, the local housing nonprofit’s homeowner services manager. “But from there you have all these other subsets. You can’t just divide our community up by income.”

That’s part of why Martinez rolled out a survey last week to gather data about the community’s housing needs, no matter a person’s financial situation. The Jackson/Teton County Affordable Housing Department does collect data about the community’s housing needs, and some is publicly available. That data is collected through the department’s intake form, which must be filled out in order to be considered in housing lotteries.
