Grant & Loan Programs
Increasing the availability of safe, affordable housing in Colorado is one of DOLA’s top priorities. The department’s Division of Housing delivers a variety of services and financial assistance to help make housing and shelter a reality for citizens throughout the state.
We assist developers and local governments in creating more affordable housing through gap funding for acquisition, rehabilitation and new construction projects. We also have programs to prevent homelessness and provide rental assistance. These grant and loan programs are competitive and funding is based on timing, availability and department priorities.
To illustrate how charging affordable rent to low-income families hinders subsidy-financed affordable housing, the Urban Institute in partnership with the National Housing Conference created an online interactive tool.
