Leveraging the skills & resources of
our communities is the foundation
for increased affordable housing


The West Mountain Regional Housing Coalition focuses on development neutral programs that do not require the purchase of land or the construction of new units. Through WMRHC's initial program offerings, the Coalition seeks to preserve existing affordable housing and support local workforce in remaining in the community with stable housing.

Deed Restriction Purchase Program & 
Ownership Buy Down Program

The West Mountain Regional Housing Coalition's Deed Restriction Purchase Program provides a mechanism to convert open-market housing into deed-restricted housing, ensuring affordable housing for working locals in perpetuity. The program essentially bridges the gap for a qualified buy between what is available on the market and what is affordable by providing significant funds at closing towards the purchase of permanent price-capped deed restriction(s) on the property. Full program guidelines and explanation are available on the links tab of this website.

Data Collection & Land Use Code Analysis

The Coalition acts as a regional hub for updated data to inform policy and increase understanding of the region's unique housing challenges. This work includes the 2019 Regional Housing Study, the 2022 COVID Impacts update to the 2019 study, the results of the recent Innovative Housing Grant, and more. Links to these resources are available on the links tab of this website.

Coming Soon!

Rental Funds Program to support first and last month's rent for those seeking to secure a new rental unit.

ADU/CDU Incentive Program to support current homeowners in adding additional rental space to their existing home (and therefore additional income) while also supporting more housing for the local workforce. 

WMRHC's Funding Model

The Coalition is primarily funded through yearly membership fees from each local jurisdiction with a seat on the Board. Grants from state and regional partners also help the Coalition with specific initiatives. The Coalition is currently seeking philanthropic dollars to support some of our more innovative programs.
