CARES Act and HUD UpdatesThe U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has announced the award of over $13 million in supplemental funds to the State of Colorado for a variety of housing, homeless, community development, and economic development activities. These funds are not currently available. DOLA is planning how the funds may be used within federal guidelines once the funds are available to the state.  

The funding made available through the CARES Act supports three existing grant programs: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Block Grant (ESG), and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA).

Catholic Charities: Phone appointments only. No walk-ins. Call 720.377.1313 Monday-Friday, 8-8:45 a.m. to make an appointment. The recording will explain what funding is available.
City of Westminster Water Bill Assistance ProgramThe City of Westminster recognizes that any increase in a utility bill, no matter how small, can have a large impact on people living on fixed incomes or those who struggle to pay even basic bills. Their Water Bill Assistance Program helps make water and sewer bills more affordable for low-income residents, by offering four different programs. These programs are available to Westminster residents only.
  • COVID-19 Program: Provides $100 one-time grants to residents financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis since mid-March 202. No income qualifications required. Applicants must submit documentation showing financial impact due to COVID-19 (e.g. job loss or job hours cut, vendor events canceled, COVID-19 illness expenses/income loss, etc.)
  • Bill Credit Program: Provides a $180 credit, applied as $15/month per 12-month period, on your residential water bill for those residents who meet the qualifying income guidelines (available here). If you already qualify for the Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP), then you will automatically qualify for this program. 
  • Hardship Program: Supports any resident who has short-term difficulties paying their water bill due to a temporary interruption of income, such as an injury or medical emergency. If the water bill has not been paid for at least 35 days from the date of the bill, one-time credits* on the water bill are available.
  • Conservation Program: Provides up to two, free high-efficiency toilets and free indoor water-use inspections to income-qualified homeowners. Homeowners qualifying for LEAP automatically qualify for this program.
Colorado Department of Local Affairs: The effort to fight COVID-19 has created economic hardships that have put some Coloradans in a struggle to pay their rent. Executive Order D2020 051 signed by Governor Jared Polis on April 30 placed a moratorium on evictions and late fees for failure to pay rent that will expire on May 30, unless it is extended. The same executive order grants the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA), Division of Housing (DOH) the authority to provide a template for renters and landlords to make payment arrangements, which may be initiated by either party to prevent late amounts from becoming immediately due when the moratorium expires. The MODEL Repayment Agreement for Tenants and Landlords resides on the DOH Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention website, along with other resources for Coloradans who need help in meeting their financial obligations for housing. Those who have accumulated past due rent are encouraged to take advantage of the MODEL Repayment Agreement template as soon as possible. Resources in Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese, and Somali.
Colorado Foreclosure HotlineTo contact a HUD-approved Colorado Foreclosure Hotline housing counselor, dial the toll-free number 877.601.HOPE (4673).

The representative will ask you for your five-digit zip code and you will be transferred to a HUD-approved housing counseling agency in your area.
Colorado Housing and Finance Authority (CHFA): In light of Governor Polis declaring a state of emergency for Colorado, the CHFA is temporarily covering the cost of online homebuyer education. Individuals may choose a free online homebuyer education option. Reimbursement for online fees paid will not be granted by either CHFA or our homebuyer education providers. Please note: CHFA is working closely with its homebuyer education providers to ensure the class schedule is accurate. However, be mindful that providers may alert you to any changes or cancellations to class registrations. Should you decide to take an online class instead, please call the provider directly to cancel your in-person registration.

COVID-19 Emergency AssistanceIf you need assistance with food, rent, or paying other bills, as a result of COVID-19, some emergency assistance may be available. This assistance is intended to help stabilize households that have been impacted by COVID-19. The level of assistance is based on your household’s situation, considering program limitations and guidelines. Your household may qualify for this assistance if you are a Jeffco resident and your annual income is $75,000 or less.

D 2020 223 Executive Order Limiting Certain Evictions to Provide Relief to Coloradans Affected by COVID-19: The executive order bans late fees for Colorado renters through the end of the year.
D 2020 227 Executive Order Amending and Extending Executive Order D 2020 223 Limiting Certain Evictions to Provide Relief to Coloradans Affected by COVID-19: According to Gov. Polis’ executive order, landlords will not be able to start the eviction process against people who can demonstrate they are experiencing “financial hardship due to COVID-19.”

That means, according to the order, that a person is using their “best efforts to obtain government assistance for rent or housing,” that they expect to personally make less than $99,000 as an individual or $198,000 as a household in 2020; that a person is unable to pay their full rent because of loss of income, hours or out-of-pocket medical expenses; that they are doing their “best efforts” to make timely partial rent payments and that they face a threat of becoming homeless with no other options.

It applies to long-term leases and month-to-month leases, but still allows for people to be evicted if they pose an “imminent and serious threat to another individual” or if they cause significant damage to their landlord’s property — an assessment that would be performed by a judge.

Per the executive order, the state Department of Local Affairs is directed to create a form that people will have to fill out to demonstrate financial hardship under the threat of perjury.

Emergency Rental and Mortgage Assistance for Households (EHAP)To Qualify for the Emergency Housing Assistance Program (EHAP): 
  • You were unable to pay your rent, mortgage, or mobile home lot rent because you experienced financial need due to COVID-19.
  • Your household monthly income is at or below the maximum income listed. 
  • You have not already received assistance that covered your rent or mortgage or mortgage forbearance.
  • You complete the application for assistance and provide all of the needed documentation. 
  • Other qualifications and documentation required will be explained by the agency you work with to access the funds.
Emergency Rental Assistance: If you or your tenants have been unable to pay rent due to financial hardship caused by COVID-19, you may be eligible for rental assistance from the state.
Emergency Rent/Mortgage and Utility Assistance for Thornton Residents: Community Connections, through the City of Thornton, partners with several agencies to provide emergency rent/mortgage and utility assistance to income-eligible households. Please contact Adam Lyons, Grant and Housing Supervisor, at 720.977.5800 or [email protected] for more information.
Eviction and Foreclosure PreventionThere is an existing network of state agencies that provide homeless prevention services, including rental and mortgage assistance. The Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) has developed an Evictions Resources Map that can be used with 211 to help renters avoid eviction.

Executive Order 2020 051 Amending and Extending Executive Orders D 2020 012 and D 2020 031 Limiting Evictions, Foreclosures, and Public Utility Disconnections and Expediting Unemployment Insurance Claim Processing to Provide Relief to Coloradans Affected by COVID-19Pursuant to the authority vested in the Office of the Governor of the State of Colorado and, in particular, pursuant to Article IV, Section 2, of the Colorado Constitution and the relevant portions of the Colorado Disaster Emergency Act, C.R.S. § 24-33.5-701, et seq., I, Jared Polis, Governor of the State of Colorado, hereby issue this Executive Order amending and extending Executive Orders D 2020 012 and D 2020 031, limiting evictions, foreclosures, and public utility disconnections and expediting unemployment insurance claim processing due to the presence of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Colorado.
Findings of the Special Eviction Prevention Task ForceThe Task Force was also invited to consider meduim- and longer-term recommendations to endure that Coloradans remain stably housed. Those broader considerations will be passed on to the Division of Housing's (DOH) newly formed Strategic Housing Working Group (SHWG).
Getting Landlords and Tenants to TalkEviction is a traumatizing and destabilizing event that can put families on a path to financial, health, and social challenges. After an eviction, families often struggle to find high-quality housing and may end up in a less safe neighborhood with fewer opportunities. Parents may lose their jobs because of the instability that evictions create and have difficulty finding a new one, further exacerbating the crisis (Desmond and Gershenson 2016). Children can be forced to move to new schools or experience other educational disruptions, which in turn can negatively affect their achievement (Clark 2016; Vásquez-Vera et al. 2017). Therefore, intervening during or before an eviction crisis occurs is key for reducing the hardships that families face, and mediation has been an important tool for empowering better outcomes. This brief explores how mediation can be used in disputes between landlords and tenants as well as provides strategies and recommendations for communities looking to expand the availability of landlord-tenant mediation.

Guidance for Assisting COVID-19 Patients Experiencing HomelessnessThe Department of Health Care Policy & Financing (the Department) has developed this document to provide guidance to its partners as they serve Coloradans during the COVID-19 pandemic.

● Have tested positive for COVID-19 and need to self-isolate, and
● Do not have a home to safely self-isolate, and
● Are currently enrolled in or are eligible for Health First Colorado 
This document may be useful to homeless advocates and providers, local public health departments, and other community organizations that are organizing the local response.

Multifamily Properties Subject to Federal Eviction MoratoriumsThis searchable database and map allow some renters to identify if their home is covered by the CARES Act eviction moratoriums. These new tools contain data on millions of apartments in multifamily housing insured by the Federal Housing Administration or securitized by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, and millions more supported by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit, HUD, and/or USDA programs. The database and map are not comprehensive; they do not include data on single-family rental homes of one to four units that are also protected under the CARES Act, and they do not include all Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac multifamily mortgages. When NLIHC obtains this additional data we will update the tools.
People Are Going to End Up Homeless: Inside Lawmakers' Failed Effort to Extend Colorado's Eviction MoratoriumIn the closing hours of Colorado’s 2020 legislative session, and with a statewide eviction moratorium set to expire, Senate Democrats worked feverishly on a last-minute plan to protect hundreds of thousands of Coloradans who may be at risk of eviction in the coming months.

State Sen. Julie Gonzales, D-Denver, hoped to extend the moratorium through October. As she spoke emotionally on the Senate floor for more than an hour about housing insecurity, Sen. Jeff Bridges, D-Greenwood Village, was working to broker a last-minute deal that would satisfy tenant advocates, the housing lobby, and a handful of wavering Democratic lawmakers.

But the talks collapsed and as the Senate adjourned just before 11 on Thursday night, it seemed unlikely that any extension of the eviction moratorium would materialize before the legislature adjourns in coming days.

Recursos del estado de Colorado para personas que estén enfrentando órdenes de desalojo o ejecuciones hipotecarias y para personas que no pueden pagar sus servicios públicosLos habitantes de Colorado no deberían estar estresados a la hora de pagar la renta, pagos hipotecarios ni facturas de servicios públicos, lo que genera más ansiedad sobre los problemas causados por el COVID-19. Es por esta razón que el día 20 de marzo de 2020, Gobernador Jared Polis emitió la Orden ejecutiva D 2020 012, la cual ordena a las agencias de Colorado a trabajar con propietarios, compañías hipotecarias y proveedores de servicios públicos para limitar los desalojos, las ejecuciones hipotecarias y las interrupciones de servicios públicos mientras Colorado esté bajo un estado de emergencia.

That’s why on March 20, 2020, Governor Jared Polis issued Executive Order D 2020 012, ordering Colorado state agencies to work with property owners, mortgage companies, and utilities providers to limit evictions, foreclosures, and public utility disconnections while Colorado is in a state of emergency.

If you know you won’t be able to pay for these vital needs, or are concerned about your ability to pay in the coming months, please review the following steps that have been taken by both government and private industries, to see how they may impact you.

Temporary Halt in Residential to Prevent the Further Spread of COVID-19: Under the authority of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the administration issued a four-month ban on evictions in order to keep millions of tenants in place in the hopes of preventing the spread of coronavirus. 

Under the terms of the new edict, tenants earning no more than $99,000 (or $198,000 jointly) may receive this protection, which takes effect Sept. 4 and lasts through Dec. 31. Qualifying renters will need to present their landlords with a written declaration testifying to their circumstances. Property owners who defy the moratorium are subject to criminal penalties.

Landlords who violate the ban will be subject to penalties ranging from $100,000 to $500,000 in fines and one year in jail.
