Housing Options for every income
With over 1,000 rental properties throughout the City of Boulder, Boulder Housing Partners offers a unique and diverse range of affordable living environments. Our rental rates are designed for middle, moderate and low-income households. Our properties are scattered throughout the city. These homes range from one-bedroom studios to carriage houses and flats to two, three and four bedroom apartments, town homes, duplexes and single-family homes. All BHP properties are non-smoking.
As the housing authority for the City of Boulder, we are committed to long-term affordability in our mission to provide housing for low and moderate-income members of our community. We currently rent over 1,000 homes and provide rental assistance to an additional 750 households. We foster a healthy sense of community in every property we develop or manage.
Boulder Housing Partners enables residents to rent affordable housing through these programs:
BHP features a variety of desirable yet economical residences: townhomes, carriage houses, apartments, duplexes from one to four bedrooms. Some are within biking or walking distance to entertaining downtown Boulder, close to recreation center, parks, workout locations, and others tucked into quiet retreat-like atmospheres.
All openings for the Boulder Affordable Rentals will be listed on Craig’s list, our Now Renting page and in our main office. Please check these for availability.
BHP offers market rate rentals at two premier locations: Foothills Community, adjacent to Wonderland Lake Open Space, and Bridgewalk, adjacent to the Open Space of CU South Campus. Both sites offer stunning mountain views from a setting of neighborhood privacy and quiet.
All openings for the Market Rate rentals will be listed on Craig’s list. Please check there for availability.
In our 450+ public housing units, low-income elderly, family, and disabled households pay 30% of their income for rent and utilities. BHP is the landlord, and the costs of operating the property that exceed rental income are subsidized by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. Most of these units are owned, managed, and maintained by BHP.
