PROJECT BACKGROUND

In 2002, The City of Glenwood Springs and HMC, with the support of local governments, obtained a Smart Growth grant to support the Regional Housing Authority Initiative.
 

The Regional Housing Authority Initiative was directed by an elected officials steering committee (consisting of elected officials from each participating government: Basalt, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs, Eagle County, Garfield County). 

The steering committee worked with HMC and the consultant team through a series of decisions relating to using the state multi-jurisdictional housing authority legislation to foster the creation of more affordable housing in the region.  The results from these decisions formed the basis of an intergovernmental agreement to create a Regional Housing Fund.
