Is there a need for affordable housing in our community?
Yes! The need is extensively documented. One out of every six people in Boulder County now live in households spending more than half their income on rent or mortgage and in Lafayette rents have continued to skyrocket over the last few years. Wages are not coming close to keeping up with the rising cost of housing across Boulder County and in Lafayette. This creates incredible stress on many of our neighbors. We have a responsibility to help people remain in the communities they love, near where their children go to school, and where they work and have family.
