The apartments are located at 22730 Farmway Road in Caldwell, Idaho. We are located off the Middleton Exit (#25) west of Caldwell on I-84. Farmway Village is a rural housing project close to the freeway and that has many community amenities including a convenient store, laundry facility, parks, and a summer water feature for the children.

Yes, the housing authority does not discriminate based on age or any of the other protected classes. However, you have to be 18 years of age in Idaho to legally enter into a contract. As such, the housing authority cannot enter into a rental agreement with anyone under the age of 18.
NO. As of January 1, 2020, an applicant does NOT have to be a farm laborer to rent from the Caldwell Housing Authority and live at Farmway Village. CHA now provides affordable housing to individuals or families who work in the Caldwell area, without regards to type of employment.
As stated in the previous section, applicants should expect the wait time to be 3-6 months before a suitable apartment is available, and should not let that discourage them from completing an application. The only way to ensure an applicant is considered for an available apartment, is by being on the waiting list. We can guarantee, however, that any person NOT on a waiting list will NOT be considered for housing.
We understand the cost rent plus security deposit can, in many cases, be a substantial barrier to renting an apartment. Depending on your rental history and background, the housing authority may, at its own discretion, collect a partial deposit and make payment arrangements with the applicant for the remaining security deposit. Security deposit arrangements are only offered to applicants who are accepted and placed on the waiting list.
