Housing & Neighborhood Services

Housing Resources

The City of Nampa has developed information flyers to assist residents with common housing concerns. We have identified four common areas:
  • Homeowners - For residents who own their home and have questions about repairs, Brush Up or Rake Up programs, foreclosures, or lead based paint.
  • Renters - For our residents who rent their home and have questions about their rights and responsibilities, preparing for home ownerships, Rake Up Nampa, and a free rental housing search engine.
  • Landlords - For our landlords in the community that have questions about their rights and responsibilities, fair housing, reasonable accommodations / modifications, and a free rental property listing service.
  • Homeownership Assistance - For our residents who are interested in home ownership and have questions about programs that may be able to provide assistance.
  • Homebuyer Research - This link features:
       - A calculator tool to show how much house you can afford
       - Mortgage approval vs. home affordability 
       - What to do when your monthly income is not steady 
       - What to do when you make a mistake (go over budget)

Assisted Housing

The Housing Idaho website identifies whether or not a property is an assisted housing provider. Calls should be made directly to the apartment/property manager shown for each development or service. Housing providers have the final say on the actual costs, services and housing types offered at each complex.

Community Resources

Nampa Community Resource Guide

Moving to Nampa or starting a business? Need Social Services or perhaps looking for youth activities, service clubs, or recreational opportunities? The Nampa Community Resource Guide may be able to help. The City of Nampa has developed a Community Resource Guide to assist Nampa residents, businesses, and those interested in moving to Nampa in locating common City and human services. This guide is meant as a helpful tool and is not all-inclusive, nor does inclusion in the directory constitute City endorsement.

Common section headings include:
  • Recreation and entertainment
  • Youth education
  • Civic groups, fraternal organizations, and service clubs
  • Higher education and employment training / resources
  • Parent / childcare programs and assistance
  • Health services
  • Veterans resources
  • Senior services
  • Housing services / resources
A copy of the guide will be online soon, or a hard copy can be obtained by visiting Nampa City Hall:
