Gateway & Natural Amenity Region Initiative

Small cities and towns outside of significant natural amenities such as national parks, public lands, ski areas, and scenic rivers throughout the western United States are becoming increasingly popular places to visit and live. As a result, many of these gateway and natural amenity region (GNAR) communities—such as Jackson, WY, and Moab, UT—are grappling with a variety of “big city” issues, including severe congestion, lack of affordable workforce housing, and concerns about sprawl. Other GNAR communities are just beginning to, or may soon, experience significant growth and tourism pressures. Effective and proactive planning is critical for helping GNAR communities preserve and enhance the qualities that make them such desirable places to live and visit.

HOME Investment Partnership Program

The HOME Investment Partnerships Program, commonly referred to as HOME, is a Federal block grant designed to help create and sustain safe, decent, and affordable housing for low-income households. The annual allocation is based on population and documented housing needs. As the designated Administrator of the Idaho’s HOME Program, IHFA awards HOME funds as gap financing to qualified Idaho housing developers to acquire, construct, or rehabilitate affordable rental housing throughout the state of Idaho.

Qualified nonprofit housing developers are awarded HOME funds as a loan to construct or rehabilitate single-family homes to be sold or rented to qualified low-income households. All HOME-assisted housing has a Period of Affordability of 5 to 20 years depending on the amount of HOME funds received and the scope of the activity (e.g. single-family/multi-family rental, new construction, rehabilitation, acquisition).
