Affordable housing is top-of-mind for Coloradans and legislators this year. Many freshman legislators ran on platforms that included affordable housing. The 2019 Housing Colorado Legislative Luncheon provides a unique forum for legislators to connect with affordable housing professionals – and to demonstrate Housing Colorado’s diversity and our commitment to secure resources for the development and preservation of affordable housing throughout Colorado.
Please join your fellow Housing Colorado members and state legislators to discuss the myriad and multi-faceted bills under consideration this legislative session. In addition to updates on current legislation, you will have the opportunity to educate legislators on the benefits stable, safe housing brings to the communities and constituents they represent. We also hope to hear from members of Governor Elect Polis’ staff who will speak on the administration’s ideas and positions on affordable housing.
While the Housing Colorado advocacy team will issue formal invitations to legislators, we encourage you to reach out to the legislators representing districts in which you are providing affordable housing and invite them to join you. Housing Colorado will cover the cost of legislator lunches. You can use Housing Colorado's Reach Out to Your Legislator in Six Easy Steps [insert link here] to locate and connect with your legislators.
