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 9 E. Vermijo 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.
