The Authority is composed of five commissioners appointed by the County Commissioners and is staffed by the County’s Economic Development Department. While the Authority was formed as a public housing authority pursuant to HUD guidelines, it was not established as a “typical” public housing authority to own public housing or administer HUD programs. Instead, it was formed to allow for loans to be made with the Housing Trust Fund (HTF), which was created by the Private Activity Bond financing for the acquisition, construction, and rehabilitation of single and multifamily residential housing and makes recommendations to the Board of El Paso County Commissioners concerning the allocation of these bonds.

Meetings are typically held on the second Wednesday of the month at 12:00pm (as necessary) at the Economic Development Office at 9 East Vermijo, Colorado Springs, CO.
