Big Bear Workforce Housing Initiative

Posted: 11/03/22

Supporting our local workforce and connecting renters with homeowners.

Across the nation housing shortages has spelled havoc for renters looking for affordable housing and resort town residents looking for long-term rentals. In an effort to support our much needed workforce, Big Bear Workforce Housing Initiative has banded together with local businesses to house residents.

A majority of homes in the valley serve as second homes and spend much of the year vacant. The goal of BBWHI is to motivate unused housing into long-term rentals.

Established in late 2021, Big Bear Workforce Housing Initiative represents a group of businesses committed to donating 5% sales to fund grants to homeowners open to renting their homes long term. In many cases, BBWHI can connect renters to homeowners without a grant as many owners don't know where to begin with finding reliable tenants. BBWHI is committed to matching qualified tenants to owners.
