What is the "Housing Authority"?

The Jackson/Teton County Housing Authority (JTCHA) is a seperate entity from the Affordable Housing Department. It is a regional Housing Authority under the Town of Jackson and Teton County. It exists to purchase and own properties. It can also carry debt, which is limited for Town and County governments.

HAB Role 

The role of the Board of Directors (HAB) is to counsel the Housing Manager on management of Housing Authority owned properties, approve or deny Critical Services Provider applications, and to hear appeals of decisions made by the Housing Manager. The Board will also make recommendations to the elected officials concerning policies of the Housing Department.

Matt became a Jackson Teton County Housing Authority Board member to help effect change as the community is dealing with a large housing issue. Being in the real estate and development business gives him a good understanding of the regulations and helps him understand the challenges workforce and affordable housing faces as he deals with it on a daily basis.
