Public Housing Program
About the Public Housing Program
BHP owns and manages rental properties located throughout the City of Boulder. Boulder Housing Partners gives the highest priority to people currently working or living in the City of Boulder, that are considered senior (62 years +), people with disabilities or families with children. If an applicant does not have the preference, their chance of clearing the waitlist is very slim. Anyone is welcome to apply; however you must be eligible and meet the income guidelines established annually by HUD. All BHP properties are non-smoking.
Rent is approximately 30% of resident's monthly adjusted income. The maximum yearly income to qualify depends on HUD regulations, family size, and total gross income. There is no minimum income to qualify. The wait time for each program varies:
- For Public Housing and Section 8 Communities, the wait time is from 1 to 4 years from the date and time the waitlist pre- application is received or a winning lottery number is drawn. Click here to find out if you qualify.
Local preference is given to your household if a member, 18 years or older, lives or works within the city limits of Boulder. (For example: Longmont and Lafayette are in Boulder County). Preference is given to households that are elderly (62+), are families with children or you or a member of your household is a person with disabilities.
No evictions from federally subsidized housing have occurred within the past five (5) years for you or a member of your household.
You and your household members are free of convictions of a crime within the past five (5) years that involves drugs, violence, or disrupting the peaceful enjoyment of others. This includes having to register on the Sex Offender’s List.
Your income meets the standards of the maximum income limits which are dependent on program and family size.
As of January 1, 2012, all residents in the public housing program will participate in the Moving to Work Program.
In compliance with HUD requirements the Board of Commissioners of BHP adopted a revised version of the Admissions and Continued Occupancy Policy, which is updated annually, at the Commissioners meeting on June 04, 2009. The policy is the groundwork for how BHP governs the public housing program. Please view this document here or contact us for more information.
