The Garfield County Housing Authority serves residents of the Roaring Fork Valley to Parachute for whom conventional housing is unaffordable. GCHA assists individuals, families, seniors and persons with disabilities and works to locate and rent or purchase adequate housing.


The Garfield County Housing Authority ONLY ACCEPTS APPOINTMENTS on Thursdays at our Rifle Office. We encourage all applicants and participants to utilize our Drop Box located just east of the glass doors. GCHA staff will still be accepting phone calls, emails, rent payments.
