Since 2010 BCHA has been developing housing for living-wage households. Having sold 13 homes in the last 4 years, we are proud to provide opportunities for families that earn less than 80% of the Area Median Income in Bonner and Boundary Counties.  We are also providing rental units throughout the region for those in the same income brackets.  We look forward to assisting you in reaching your dream of home ownership.
