Today, the median price tag of a single family home hovers around $1.6M. Meanwhile, the average annual household salary is $75,000. This wage and cost of living disparity make it nearly impossible for professionals in Teton County to purchase a free market home. To ensure that the best and brightest educators can live in the community they serve, the Housing Trust continues to seek out opportunities to provide more affordable housing for our dedicated workforce. Currently, we serve a total of 49 educators who work in Jackson. Principal of Jackson Elementary School, Tracy Poduska, says that number equates to about 1/3 of her staff. We are proud to be moving the needle on this critical issue, but there is much more to be done. To apply for affordable housing through the Housing Trust or to support our work, please visit our website at housingtrustjh.org or call 307.739.0665.
