Recently, the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA), through the Division of Housing's State Housing Board, voted on, approved, and awarded $6,650,000 for 126 additional affordable housing units across the state.

The State of Colorado seeks to offer a continuum of housing alternatives for households with various requirements and Area Median Incomes (AMI), as well as for individuals looking for housing in combination with social services, in order to meet the demands of an ever-changing population.

The project is a partnership between the City of Fort Collins, TWG Development, Housing Catalyst, and Elevation Community Land Trust. The units, upon completion, will be offered to households who make less than 70% of the AMI.
