In 2006, Sheridan County, the City of Sheridan, and the towns of Dayton, Ranchester and Clearmont reached an agreement by resolution to participate in the County-wide Mineral Impact Grant program.  The 2-million-dollar grant program was designed to assist in financing infrastructure for affordable housing projects as a result of the impact on housing caused by the Coal Bed Methane boom.  In 2007, Affordable Housing Rules were adopted by the Sheridan County Board of Commission and under the terms of the program, funds received in satisfaction of liens, funds forfeited by the developer, or by market sales are deposited in the affordable housing fund to be used for the purpose of reallocating such funds to further develop affordable housing within the County.  Funds can be used for infrastructure owned by the County or the incorporated Municipalities, and/or for affordable housing opportunities County-wide.


This RFP is designed to identify projects which are ready for acquisition and construction activities. The proposal should not represent a project that is conceptual in nature. Further, the proposal is intended to clearly state the entire scope and anticipated accomplishments of the housing activity proposed.
