Colorado Affordable Housing Developer’s Guide
The intention of the Guide is to help support local for-profit and nonprofit developers, community leaders, and advocates seeking to ensure that safe, decent, and affordable housing is an intentional and integrated part of their community fabric. The Guide is dedicated to all Coloradans who are seeking housing stability and economic prosperity. We hope this resource paves a path forward for a brighter and stronger future for the entire state. CHFA would like to thank the numerous partners and collaborators who helped make the Colorado Affordable Housing Developer’s Guide possible.
