The City of Boulder is committed to making a home in our community available to a variety of people – including those who could not otherwise purchase a home in today’s housing market. That’s where the Boulder Division of Housing comes in. We offer opportunities for homeownership to those with low and moderate incomes – from down payment assistance on market rate homes to homes that must be sold at affordable prices.
Overview of Programs
Here is an overview of the basic requirements of each of the Homeownership Programs. Read more
Homeworks/Permanently Affordable Homes
To make sure some homes in Boulder will always be affordable to those with low to moderate incomes, the Division of Housing has created the Homeworks program. Many of these homes are built by developers as a requirement of Inclusionary Housing: Inclusionary Housing Ordinance. Homes are sold at below market-rate prices to income-eligible buyers. Homes are permanently affordable and governed by an Affordability Covenant. These homes will be listed on our website at www.boulderaffordablehomes.com. Read more
Downpayment Assistance Programs
Two different down payment opportunities are available to first time low/moderate income homebuyers purchasing a market-rate property within the city limits of Boulder. The House to Homeownership (H20) assistance comes in the form of a loan that is due after 15 years, or upon sale or refinance of the home. We also offer a Solutions grant to assist with closing costs for the HomeWorks program. This grant provides between 3-5% of the home's purchase price to a buyer, after buyer's funds have been applied. Funds are limited for these programs and are available first-come, first-serve.Read more
