Monthly Archives: June 2021



Sheridan County and the City of Sheridan are soliciting proposals for a Housing Needs Assessment and Plan.  The desired outcome of the project is twofold:

  • A comprehensive assessment of housing need in Sheridan County that includes both a snapshot of existing inventory and community demographics, as well as a gap analysis of estimated demand compared to existing housing inventory and anticipated new units. 
  • The development of a Housing Action Plan that includes a detailed strategy for meeting short and long range goals for meeting needs identified in the gap analysis.


Sheridan County is a steadily growing county in northern Wyoming with an estimated population of 30,485 (2019, US Census Bureau).  The City of Sheridan is the county seat and largest community in the county with an estimated population of 17,940.  The last comprehensive Sheridan County housing needs assessment was conducted in 2006.  Sheridan County is a preferred location for many who choose to live in Wyoming, and the area has experienced a significant increase in rents and home prices.  Stakeholders in the community desire to address the increasing difficulties for community residents in finding adequate housing.  


An electronic copy of proposal materials in PDF format must be submitted to the City of Sheridan for consideration.  All proposals must be received by 5:00PM on July 23, 2021.  Electronic proposals should be e-mailed to the address below:
