Our mission is to strengthen Colorado by investing in affordable housing and community development.

​​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.

In 1982, when the Colorado economy was experiencing economic difficulties, C​HFA began making loans to businesses.​​​​

Investing in Colorado's success

Since 1974, CHFA has invested more than $32.5 billion into Colorado’s economy. These resources have helped:

  • 147,372 ​Colorado homebuyers achieve homeownership;
  • 189,652 households attend homebuyer education classes held statewide;
  • 79,265 affordable rental housing units be developed or preserved; and
  • 8,411 businesses access capital to support 85,301 jobs.​​​
