Housing Rules & Regulations

The Jackson/Teton County Housing Department is updating the Housing Rules and Regulations (formerly called Guidelines) that govern:

• Who qualifies to live in a Housing Department home?
• What restrictions apply to living in a Housing Department home?

Housing Department managed homes include owner-occupied and rental homes built through zoning requirements, zoning incentives, and public funds. These homes are known as affordable, employment-based, attainable, employee, and workforce homes.


On July 10th, the Town Council and Board of County Commissioners approved 10 policy questions that will guide the updates to the Housing Qualifications and Restrictions. To see these policy questions, click here. 

On June 1st, 2017, the community provided feedback on issues with parking regulations at an Open House & Community Discussion and via an online survey. Click here for the summary of community comment.

Housing Rules & Regulations

  • Section 1: Ownership Restricted Units

  • Section 2: Rental Restricted Units

  • Section 3: Housing Mitigation



Housing in the community has been less and less affordable since the 1980s. The Rules and Regulations help to make sure that the 880 homes managed by the Housing Department are used in a way that best meets the needs of the community. But the Rules and Regulations have not been updated since 2008. Since then, the community has adopted a Workforce Housing Action Plan in 2015 which has identified 3 workforce housing goals related to the Rules and Regulations:

1 | Standardize and simplify the restrictions on subsidized homes

2 | Establish minimum restrictions that consistently apply to all subsidized homes

3 | Develop a single application for all housing programs

Updating the Rules and Regulations will make sure that these goals are implemented in line with community values and that workforce housing programs are as effective as possible.
