Housing Department Seeks to Connect Employers with Housing Opportunities

Housing Logo News Flash Web

The Jackson/Teton County Affordable Housing Department released an employer survey on Thursday and is encouraging the business community to provide feedback.

The survey is designed for local businesses and organizations who have an interest in partnering with other employers to secure stable housing for their employees.

“The Housing Action Plan directs us to work with interested parties to catalyze an employee housing cooperative for employers who want to provide units but cannot develop housing on their own,” said April Norton, the Housing Department’s Director. “To do this, the Housing Department will serve as a clearinghouse, identifying complementary housing needs and resources, and connecting those employers with one another.”  

The first step for this work is the employer survey that seeks to identify housing needs and any resources employers may be able to offer for a project. In early May, the Housing Department will host a series of “round table” discussions with employers in an effort to discover partnership opportunities.

The survey is available at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MNYFQG3. Responses are due by April 12, 2019.

For questions about the survey or any other information needs, please contact the Affordable Housing Department at 307-732-0867 or housing@tetoncountywy.gov.
