HUD Releases New Median Household Income Numbers

2020 Small Income Range Chart

The median family income in Teton County, WY rose by 8.3% in 2019 in contrast to 3.7% in 2018, according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Community members seeking safe, stable housing through the Jackson/Teton County Housing Department, Jackson Hole Community Housing Trust and/or Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Teton Area, should check each organization’s website to see for which programs they may qualify.

The Housing Department has two primary programs serving working families in the community. The Affordable Program is based on household income and total asset worth. Applicants must earn less than 120% of the medium family income for Teton County. Meanwhile, the Workforce Program requires that at least 75% of the household income is earned locally, but has no income or asset limit. For both programs, applicants must work full-time for a local business.
