House Construction



The Colorado Mountain Housing Coalition is a 501C3 organization, which started with a congressional allocation of $1 million dollars in 2002 to help fund down payment assistance in mountain regions.

The Coalition’s purpose is to strengthen the capacity of its members to implement their housing programs and services and acts as a central organization to provide leadership, education, advocacy on public issues, and technical and supportive assistance. It works to increase the effectiveness of the rural western and mountain voice in public policy decisions affecting funding, regulations, and distribution of resources.
