Calculation of income:
Household income is based on the current income earned by all intended adult occupants of the Restricted Housing Unit at time of weighted drawing entry using the current household income to estimate an annual (12 month) income basis. Households must use their current income and may not make changes or adjustments during a drawing period.
Business income of a qualifying Household is calculated using an average of the last three (3) years of income on the business’ tax returns. A year to date profit and loss determination will also be used to calculate business income. If the business has not been operating for three (3) years, the Housing Department will average income over the time the business has been operating.
Deadline to Apply: Tuesday August 11th by 4:00 p.m. No late or incomplete entries will be allowed, no exceptions.
All forms need to enter into this weighted drawing are here, under "Ownership - Weighted Drawing Entry Forms".
You may receive one additional entry into the drawing for every uninterrupted year of verified full-time employment (minimum of 1,560 hours) in Teton County with a maximum of 10 years/entries.
