Impact of the Transformational Affordable Housing Grant Program

This program represents a historic victory for Colorado and provides funding to support the development of affordable housing across the state. The housing shortage is a fear that many Coloradans face, but by the State working together with organizations across Colorado, we can together take on the task of building housing now. With the assistance of this new grant program, community initiatives will advance more quickly, and localities will have the tools and resources they require to make housing more accessible for Coloradans.
