The Garfield County Housing Authority administers the Community Housing Programs for Garfield County, the City of Glenwood Springs and the Town of Carbondale. This includes the sale of community or workforce housing units in a number of neighborhoods. Please continue reading to learn about how these programs work.
Understanding Community Housing Programs
GCHA advises all interested persons to read through all pages listed under the Affordable Housing tab including the Community Housing Programs that you are interested in. These pages will list explain how their programs work and list key information such as their Guidelines, Area Median Income Limits, the Priorities of their lottery, and copies of Deed Restrictions. Please note that while these programs are similar in how they work, key aspects may differ such as income limits, affordable housing rentals, and how the categories of the lotteries are set up.
Please note that once you have read through these Community Housing Program pages and how their programs work, you may have more detailed questions regarding eligibility. At this time, please contact Kristel Langford to verify all questions.
Understanding Deed Restrictions
Deed restrictions are stipulations written into a property’s deed that outline conditions, covenants, and/or restrictions for the property. All homes listed for sale or as a rental through the Community Housing Programs are Deed Restricted. Please CLICK HERE to read an overview of understanding Affordable Housing and Deed Restrictions.
