​​Our vision is that everyone in Colorado will have the opportunity for housing stability and economic prosperity.​


Created in 1973

CHFA’s mission is to strengthen Colorado by investing in affordable housing and community development. We were created in 1973 by the Colorado General Assembly to address the shortage of affordable housing in the state.

  • 140,780 ​Colorado homebuyers achieve homeownership;
  • 181,909 households attend homebuyer education classes held statewide;
  • 76,544 affordable rental housing units be developed or preserved; and
  • 7,812 businesses access capital to support 81,089 jobs.​​​
