Affordable Housing Strategy and Action Plan

Addressing affordable housing is one of the city and State’s most pressing issues. The Colorado Department of Local Affairs awarded the City a grant in October 2021 to complete an Affordable Housing Strategy and Action Plan (“Strategy”).

Wheat Ridge City Council adopted the strategy on January 9, 2023, after several study sessions and consultation with community members, developers, and city boards and commissions. The strategy includes a Wheat Ridge-specific needs assessment, articulates city policy related to affordable housing, and curates a responsive set of actions with recommended sequencing over the next 5 or more years.

In 2023, the city hired a Housing Program Administrator to assist in facilitation of the strategy and other housing-related projects. For more information on the strategy contact Terrance Ware at
