Department of Local Affairs provides $23 million in federal emergency rental assistance

COLORADO —  Up to $19.65 million in federal CARES Act funding for emergency rental assistance is now available to property owners on behalf of their tenants through the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) Division of Housing (DOH). In addition, the division awarded $3.27 million through the Colorado State Housing Board (SHB) for affordable housing in July.

Applications are now open for landlords to apply for the Property Owner Preservation (POP) program on behalf of their residents impacted by COVID-19, which resides alongside the Emergency Housing Assistance Program (EHAP) for renters on the DOH website.

The State Housing Board and DOLA’s Division of Housing continue to support the creation of affordable housing that is accessible, safe and secure for all Coloradoans. For complete information on Housing Board grant approvals, visit
