Sawtooth | Gunnison County project within City of Gunnison

VHF supports Gunnison County’s new affordable rental housing development in the City of Gunnison. Placing housing within city limits reduces costs and challenges by providing an opportunity to connect to central infrastructure and city services. It also offers homes close to public transportation, schools, and grocery stores. Phase one will provide 18 new units by the end of Summer 2023, with phase two expected to bring an additional 30 new houses in 2024. Phase one will be available for those within the 80% AMI range, which for a two person household represents an annual income of about $56,000. Phase two will have a higher AMI threshold of between 80-130% AMI. The AMI limits proposed for this site align with City, County, and community developed goals to increase affordable housing in the Gunnison Valley. Photo credit: Gunnison Country Times
