HOUSING ASSISTANCE FOR TOWN GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES
All Town of Vail employee housing units are full for the 2016-17 winter season. Please check back May 1, 2017 for summer season employee housing.
The Town of Vail as an employer began developing its own employee housing program in 1998 as a component in the recruitment and retention of employees. The properties range from studios to a three-bedroom condominium and are mainly allocated to seasonal employees and "critical" year-round employees such as police officers, dispatchers, plow operators and mechanics. Every winter season, over 60 employees live in the town's housing and receive the benefit of affordable rents.
The Town of Vail provides an Employee Home Ownership Program (EHOP) to assist our full-time employees in purchasing a primary residence.
The Town of Vail also provides interest free loans for our full-time employees entering the local rental housing market. Under the rental advance program, the town provides a qualifying full-time employee with a loan of up to $2,000 towards move-in expenses. The loan must be repaid through payroll deductions interest free within six months.

In addition, "critical" employees, such as police officers, firefighters, dispatchers, bus drivers and snowplow drivers, are given top priority during resales of six deed-restricted homes at Red Sandstone Creek in Vail.
