The City of Boise is committed to doing everything we can to ensure a home for those who choose to call Boise home, at every budget. This includes investing in tools like the Housing Land Trust, which focuses on the development and preservation of affordable housing on land that is owned by the city.
In December 2020, the City of Boise purchased a 0.94-acre property – State and Arthur – as part of the Housing Land Trust program. The building will add 102 affordable housing units, serving residents earning 80% of area median income, which translates to an individual earning $42,200 a year, or a family of three earning $54,250 a year.
In addition to housing, State & Arthur will incorporate a community garden, safe routes to school for children attending Taft Elementary, and new sidewalks.
Construction will begin in late 2022, with an anticipated completion date of early 2024.
