Housing Colorado actively monitors state and federal policy that impacts affordable housing in Colorado – this includes federal and state funding programs, compliance and other key issues that impact the development and preservation of affordable housing.

As a member-based association, Housing Colorado actively engages members throughout the year in advocacy activities. This may be direct advocacy, such as contacted elected officials, or more indirect activities, such as raising public awareness about the affordable housing needs in the community.

State Policy

Each year, the Housing Colorado Legislative Committee monitors bills introduced in the Colorado State General Assembly and assesses their impact on the affordable housing industry. Working closely with other state partners, Housing Colorado is an influential voice under the Gold Dome. Each year, Housing Colorado hosts numerous events that help our members gain access to key decision-makers, learn more about the policy development process, and share their own stories to elevate awareness of affordable housing needs – and critical shortfalls – in our state. 

National Policy

Housing Colorado is a state coalition partner of the National Low Income Housing Coalition, a Washington, D.C. based association dedicated solely to achieving socially just public policy that assures people with the lowest incomes in the United States have affordable and decent homes. Through NLIHC, Housing Colorado is able to monitor important developments to critical federal programs such as Community Development Block Grants and program funding through the Dept. Of Housing and Urban Development. In addition, Housing Colorado promotes the annual Out of Reach study which documents the Housing Wage, a statistic that calculates the wage one must earn in order to afford a modest rental home in communities across the state.
