Housing Assistance and Information

Housing Information and Referral
Many Idahoans are struggling with housing insecurity during the economic downturn. Information and referral providers can serve as a guide for those seeking housing resources or strategies.

Expanding Housing Choice for All
Although housing resources and options exist in Idaho, many housing consumers and their advocates have lacked a general guide or roadmap. For obvious reasons, including fair housing compliance, it is important that case managers and advocates provide the widest variety of choices for tenants seeking housing.

To meet this need, the Idaho Housing and Finance Association (IHFA) has offered a Housing Information and Referral Center and toll-free Housing Hotline since 1998. In 2007, IHFA sponsored a free rental housing locator service at www.housingidaho.com to assist housing providers, consumers and advocates in making housing connections.

Housing Assistance Guide
IHFA recently produced a Housing Assistance Guide that features answers to the most frequently asked questions received through their hotline from 1998 to the present.

The Housing Assistance Guide is now available for download in English, Spanish, French, and Arabic. Click on the link below to download and print the version you need.
