Temporary Emergency Relief for Commuters (TERC)

One22 is here to serve our neighbors both in times of everyday need and during unexpected crises. That includes anyone who lives or works in Teton County, Wyoming. The June 7, 2024 landslide and subsequent road closure on Teton Pass debilitated a route that is a lifeline to many in our community. If you are a Teton Valley commuter to Teton County, Wyoming and have been affected by this disaster, One22 may be able to help. Our Temporary Emergency Relief for Commuters (TERC) program can help you offset increased costs as a result of this event.

Financial Assistance

One22 understands that the closure of Teton Pass has, and will continue to, result in challenging impacts in both the short- and long-term for our neighbors commuting to Teton County, Wyoming from Teton Valley. If you have found yourself struggling to pay for basic needs as a result of this event, we are here to help. We can provide one-time financial assistance to help you with expenses such as shelter, childcare, food, transportation and more.

Applications for this financial assistance are currently open and subject to available funds. Please note: this program is available only to residents of Teton Valley (Teton County, ID and Alta, WY) who commute and work at least 30 hours per week in Teton County, Wyoming. If you received a TERC “Quick Relief” gas/grocery stipend from One22, you may still apply to receive financial assistance.
