Habitat for Humanity is selecting the final group of eight homeowners who will build and live in townhouses at The Grove development on Snow King Avenue.
Applications for the homes aren’t due until Aug. 19. But to be considered, households are required to attend one of several information sessions to learn more about the opportunity.
Information sessions will take place at 6 p.m. June 12 and 27 at the Teton County Library in English, as well as at 6 p.m. July 10 and 31 at St. John’s Episcopal Church.
Spanish-language information sessions are scheduled to be held at 6 p.m. June 20 at the library and 6 p.m. July 15 at St. John’s Episcopal Church.
Businesses can also invite Habitat staff to present to their employees who are looking to own an affordable home.
Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area builds affordable houses with 30-year, zero-interest mortgages for the community’s lowest-income earners. Monthly mortgage payments are set at less than 30% of the family’s income.
In 2016, the Teton County Board of County Commissioners voted to hand over construction of the final 24 three-bedroom units at The Grove affordable housing project to Habitat, which uses volunteer and homeowner labor to keep construction costs low, about $175 per square foot.
Owners of the first eight units moved in during fall 2018, and the second group of eight are expected to move in next winter. Construction on the final eight units is underway, with the whole project targeting completion in June 2021.
