As the demand to live in Western mountain towns continues to explode, the housing crunch for local workers is more dire than ever. One way several town governments are trying to help is by offering down payment assistance for some of those workers to buy homes. Will Walkey from KHOL reports on how that effort is going in Jackson, Wyoming.

This story is part of a Rocky Mountain Community Radio reporting collaboration on affordable housing funded by the Solutions Journalism Network.
