Colorado General Assembly

Housing Colorado carefully monitors all legislation introduced during the regular session of the Colorado General Assembly.  Using the annually-adopted policy priories of the organization, the Legislative Committee evaluates each bill for its direct and indirect impact on the affordable housing industry.  When necessary, Housing Colorado mobilizes members and partners throughout the state to take action on legislation by contacting their state representatives.
 
In addition to the activities of the General Assembly, Housing Colorado also monitors statewide ballot issues through the initiative and referendum process.  We follow regulatory hearings and other procedural business throughout the year to keep our members informed and ensure our members interests are represented every step of the way.

Federal Policy & Congress

As a state coalition partner of the National Low Income Housing Coalition, we keep our members informed of key developments in Congress, include the annual budget development process and allocations to critical federal programs that directly impact resources available to the affordable housing industry.
