Division of Housing
The Division of Housing partners with local communities to create housing opportunities for Coloradans who face the greatest challenges in accessing affordable, safe, and secure homes. This includes efforts to increase and preserve Colorado's inventory of affordable housing, manage rental assistance vouchers, support collaborative approaches to end homelessness, and regulate Mobile Home Parks and the construction and installation of factory-built structures.
Division of Local Government
The Division of Local Government collaborates closely with local communities, providing strategic expertise, advocacy, and crucial funding to enhance Colorado's strength. It actively promotes local problem-solving, and informed decision-making and makes strategic investments in communities. Our focus on self-reliance, local empowerment, resilient practices, and effective local leadership fortifies communities across the state. The Division of Local Government includes the following teams: Administration and Business Operations, Colorado Resiliency Office, Community Development Office, Financial Assistance Services, Local Government Services, and Field Team.
Division of Property Taxation
The Division of Property Taxation oversees property tax law statewide, led by the appointed property tax administrator under the State Board of Equalization. The Division provides valuable resources and support to taxpayers and local assessors’ offices.
Board of Assessment Appeals
The Board of Assessment Appeals is a nine-member Board of appraisers who sit as hearing officers to decide appeals from property valuation and classification decisions of county boards of equalization and county boards of county commissioners, and exemptions and state-assessed properties decisions of the State Property Tax Administrator.
State Housing Board
The Colorado State Housing Board plays a pivotal role in advising the General Assembly, the Governor, and the Division of Housing on housing needs across the state. Comprising seven members, the State Housing Board is responsible for reviewing financing requests and establishing regulations for factory-built structures and multifamily housing in counties without building codes.
Executive Director's Office
The Executive Director's Office oversees the primary interface between the State and local communities by supporting and coordinating the Divisions within the Department. The office also provides several key "back office" roles, thereby avoiding unnecessary duplication of effort within the Divisions.
State Demography Office
The State Demography Office serves as Colorado's resource for population and demographic data. The Office collaborates with the U.S. Census Bureau to offer population estimates and forecasts for regions, counties, and municipalities. You can easily explore data resources, featuring visualizations, spreadsheets, and technical documentation, all searchable by topic or geography.
