Event description

Description

Join the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless and our partners to hear the positions and perspectives from the Gubernatorial candidates on affordable housing, living wages, and the state budget. This event is FREE and open for everyone to attend but you must RSVP because space is limited.

There are two housing issues we are dealing with in Colorado--the high cost to rent and the shortage of available units:

  • For every 100 families living at 30% area median income (extremely low-income), there are only 27 available and affordable units.
  • 75% of extremely low-income Coloradans with housing are spending over half of their income on rent.

Colorado must make an investment in affordable housing!

Questions? Aubrey Hasvold at ahasvold@coloradocoalition.org

Mike Johnston, Cary Kennedy, Donna Lynn, Jared Polis, Erik Underwood, Stephen Barlock, Cynthia Coffman, Lew Gaiter, Greg Lopez, Victor Mitchell, Doug Robinson, Walker Stapleton, Barry Farah, Jim Rundberg, Greg Westin, Teri Kear, and Erich Braun.
