In recent years, the Boise housing market has become competitive. With this in mind, housing stability and housing access is more important than ever. Community members and groups who work closely with tenants have raised concerns that span a range of issues, from seniors who have seen their rents rise while their incomes stay fixed, to tenants whose historically affordable homes are being replaced by new units they can’t afford.
To address these concerns and support residents in our community, city staff presented a package of tenant protections to the Mayor and Boise City Council. Before moving forward with additional actions, the city conducted outreach and a survey to hear from impacted residents directly.
See more below on the process to update our tenant protections and see how you can get involved.
