Colorado Housing Financial Assistance

Over 100 agencies, nonprofits and charitable organizations offering resources for those in need of assistance

Real estate markets fluctuate over time. Today, we are observing an increase in demand for rental housing. Seniors are seeking to downsize and move into walkable, maintenance-free housing while millennials are choosing the flexibility offered by renting. 

Multifamily housing developers are scrambling to deliver additional rental housing units to the market. 10,000 units are expected to enter the market this year with another 10,000 in the planning stages which will ultimately stabilize rents.

As a result, for those who haven’t shared in the benefits of Colorado’s economic growth, finding and retaining affordable housing can be a challenge. 

The Colorado Apartment Association has aligned with the Colorado Association of Realtors, the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority, Colorado Housing Connects, and the Colorado Division of Housing to produce this Guide. The Guide is a listing of over 100 agencies, nonprofits and charitable organizations in Colorado that offer a variety of resources to those in need of assistance.
