El Paso County Housing Authority

Purpose:

The El Paso County Housing Authority was established to help promote the availability of decent, safe, and sanitary dwelling accommodations in the county for persons of low-to-moderate income. The Housing Authority advises the Board of County Commissioners on matters regarding the issuance of bonds for the acquisition, construction, and rehabilitation of single- and multi-family residential housing to provide more affordable housing opportunities for residents.  In addition, the Authority manages the Housing Trust Fund, which provides funding to community-based organizations for innovative housing-related programs, and contracts with the County to administer a rehabilitation program for single-family dwellings.

Meetings:

Housing Authority meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month at noon at Centennial Hall, 200 S. Cascade Ave., Colorado Springs, CO. Special meetings may be scheduled as necessary.

Members and Length of Terms:

The Housing Authority consists of five members appointed by the Board of County Commissioners for five-year terms. Terms are limited to two full consecutive terms.
