Housing Rehabilitation Program

El Paso County Logo
City-County Programs
The Housing Rehabilitation Program provides financial assistance through grants and/or loans to improve housing conditions for qualifying low- and moderate-income households within the City of Colorado Springs and El Paso County.

Funds provided for housing rehabilitation are made available through programs offered by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The HUD programs include the Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) and HOME Investment and Partnership Program (HOME). The funds from these programs must be used for eligible items as defined by HUD and the Housing Development Division.

The primary goals of the Housing Rehabilitation Program are to improve the living conditions for low -and moderate- income residents within the community and promote affordable housing.

The objectives of the Housing Rehabilitation Program are to:

  • Upgrade and preserve the City’s stock of older housing
  • Reduce the number of substandard units
  • Eliminate slum and blighting conditions
  • Encourage conventional investment in the existing housing stock
  • Provide contracting opportunities for small, local, minority, low-income and women-owned business enterprises in the housing construction industry

The City recognizes that the rehabilitation of properties creates more desirable, economically viable and stable neighborhoods.

The Housing Rehabilitation Program includes the following components:

Owner Occupant Rehabilitation Loan Program
(El Paso County & City)

Architectural Barrier Removal Program
(El Paso County & City)
Emergency Repair Program
(El Paso County & City)
Lights and Locks for Seniors Program

Each component program has provisions for eligibility, specific types of eligible rehabilitation and financing terms that are determined by the Housing Development Division.
