The Fort Collins Housing Authority strives to increase the availability of affordable housing in and near the City of Fort Collins. One way we do this is through public/private partnerships.

The Housing Authority brings many benefits to these partnerships, including fee waivers, low interest rate financing, tax exemption and property management and human services expertise.

We will review requests in regard to our mission and will prudently consider whether by virtue of our participation a project or outcome is strengthened without weakening the ability of the Housing Authority to further its core work.

We invite you to review the following documents and to contact our Director of Development, Chadrick Martinez, to discuss prospective partnerships.
