ARP: Eagle CO, Funds Affordable Housing Solutions

Idea Category: Housing | Funding Source: American Rescue Plan

Roberts helped develop broad housing goals with fellow lawmakers in Colorado to utilize their ARP funds, specifically the legislature’s Affordable Housing Task Force recommendations to invest in a revolving loan fund, resident-owned communities, and related services. The Affordable Housing Task Force, chaired by Representative Dylan Roberts, successfully turned the task force’s recommendations into action over the summer and had five bills signed into law that will utilize a total of $428 million in ARP funds towards housing solutions.

Representative Roberts’ authored bill creates new grant programs and provides $178 million to help communities invest in affordable housing grant projects and related services and to sustainably develop vacant land. The other bills will encourage new investments in modular, prefabricated, and manufactured homes; expand finance and loan opportunities for affordable housing developers; and provide grants to local governments and nonprofits to buy land and develop affordable housing projects themselves.
