Welcome

The Garfield County Housing Authority serves residents of the Roaring Fork Valley, from Carbondale to Parachute, who cannot afford conventional housing.  GCHA assists individuals, families, seniors and persons with disabilities, in locating and procuring affordable purchase and rental housing opportunities. 

The mission of the Garfield County Housing Authority is to assist low-income families with decent, safe, and affordable housing opportunities as they strive to achieve self-sufficiency and improve the quality of their lives; to provide necessary assistance to families for the purchase or rental of appropriate housing; to facilitate development of housing that is both affordable and attainable for lower income families.

GCHA also works with the communities and governments in this region on affordable housing policies and guidelines. Our goal is to build healthy communities by ensuring quality housing for all residents in the Roaring Fork and Colorado River valleys.
