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.


A message to our clients and colleagues regarding COVID-19.

Considering recent events, our primary concern is for the health, safety, and well-being of our staff, families and the communities we serve.

The Garfield County Housing Authority will remain in operation while adhering to the guidance on limiting the spread of COVID-19.

  • Our staff will be available through phone calls and email and will limit all non-essential in-person meetings.
  • All individuals allowed into the lobby MUST wear self-provided face masks! Individuals without masks will not be allowed inside.
  • All individuals MUST have their temperature verified at the front door by a staff member before being allowed inside the building. Staff will use a “radiant” no-touch thermometer to take temperatures.
  • We will not be making copies of any paperwork for you at this time, so please mail us copies of your required paperwork or only bring copies to leave with us.
