Housing unaffordability has become an increasing concern in Colorado. This research is designed to help policymakers, advocates and housing experts better understand the many factors contributing to the state’s housing crisis by providing insight into unfavorable trends impacting the housing system. In the report Exploring Colorado’s Housing Affordability Challenges in All of Their Complexity, the authors build off their previous research on family economic security, which shows many Colorado families are more housing cost-burdened today than ever before.
The study, which was supported by The Piton Foundation, Housing Colorado and the Colorado Health Foundation, argues the crisis is largely a supply issue, there is not one fix and now is the time to think differently.
