    NUESTRO PLAN Ninguna organización sola puede resolver la crisis local de vivienda. Nos tomará a todos enfrentarlo de frente: el gobierno, el sector privado, los grupos comunitarios y los individuos. Pero creemos que se puede hacer. Creemos que hay cuatro pasos que pueden proporcionar un camino que la comunidad de Chaffee pueda seguir para asegurarse de que todos nuestros trabajadores locales, familias y personas mayores tengan un lugar seguro y asequible al que llamen hogar. Nuestro plan estratégico está alineado con este camino. Estas son las cuatro cosas que debemos hacer como comunidad, y las formas específicas en que la CHA está preparada para ayudar. ​ Vea el plan estratégico de CHA 2022-2026 aquí .

  • HOUSING SPEAKER SERIES | Chaffee Housing Authority

    HOUSING SPEAKER SERIES ¿Por qué un ciclo de ponencias centrado en la vivienda? El interés de la comunidad en viviendas asequibles está en su punto más alto, ya que los empleados y las familias del condado de Chaffee continúan luchando por encontrar un lugar asequible para vivir. Los profesionales del condado tienen el desafío de administrar el crecimiento rápido, abordar los cambios de política necesarios para intervenir en el aumento del costo de la vivienda y detener el desplazamiento de residentes de ingresos bajos y moderados. La serie de oradores de Vivienda + Salud fue diseñada para aumentar la comprensión colectiva del condado de Chaffee sobre el uso de la tierra y las estrategias de gestión del crecimiento y cómo estas estrategias, cuando se crean teniendo en cuenta la salud de la comunidad, pueden convertirse en una influencia positiva en la salud ambiental, social y económica de nuestra comunidad. La Iniciativa de Vivienda + Salud fue financiada por la Oficina de Equidad en la Salud del Departamento de Salud Pública y Medio Ambiente de Colorado y es parte del Programa de Disparidades en la Salud. La Oficina de Salud Pública y Medio Ambiente del Condado de Chaffee y la Oficina de Vivienda del Condado de Chaffee se centraron en utilizar estos fondos para abordar el desplazamiento y la gentrificación de la vivienda, aumentando la asequibilidad y la estabilidad de la vivienda a lo largo del tiempo, lo que mejorará los resultados de salud a largo plazo de los residentes del Condado de Chaffee.

    PLAN ESTRATEGICO La Autoridad de Vivienda de Chaffee (CHA) es una organización pública independiente, formada en octubre de 2020 a través de un acuerdo conjunto entre el condado de Chaffee, la ciudad de Salida y el pueblo de Buena Vista. El trabajo de la CHA se enfoca únicamente en aumentar las viviendas asequibles en todo el condado. Este Plan Estratégico 2022-2026, el primero de la organización, fue desarrollado por el personal y la junta inaugural en medio de una crisis de vivienda sin precedentes que afecta al condado de Chaffee, que se ha complicado y exacerbado por la pandemia de COVID-19. Estas amenazas duales han hecho que este plan sea más urgente, incluso cuando lo que está en juego ha aumentado para aquellos que luchan por vivir en el condado. Esta hoja de ruta estratégica sirve como guía para los próximos cinco años de operaciones de la organización. Fue informado directamente por aportes de la comunidad, incluida la encuesta más reciente de CHA que recopiló comentarios de casi 300 residentes con problemas de vivienda. También pretende reflejar las prioridades y las colaboraciones con el gobierno local, los grupos comunitarios y los líderes empresariales, todos los cuales también están trabajando para garantizar que los trabajadores y las familias locales, los más afectados por la escasez de viviendas asequibles y seguras en nuestra comunidad: tener un lugar al que llamar hogar. ● Innovative approaches and sustainable funding streams to promote housing density and address the housing crisis in Chaffee County. ● Policies that support a public/private ecosystem that builds housing to meet the needs of our community and its subgroups (workforce, employers, etc.) ● Maximizing available resources, existing assets, and new tools to attain housing for all income ranges through good policy and sound practices. ● Housing development throughout the income range, including “market rate” development beyond the currently accepted “affordable” range of up to 120% of Local Area Median Income. ● Opportunities to provide local resident households the opportunity to build financial equity, establish stability, and pursue opportunities to create intergenerational wealth and a sustainable community. ● Code and process improvements to remove barriers and expedite development that aligns with the housing needs of our community. The mission of the Housing Solutions Coalition is to provide a cohesive vision and voice to support projects and policies that address the housing crisis.

  • Our Plan | Chaffee Housing Authority

    REPORTE ANUAL Chaffee Housing Authority Proposes Ballot Measures to Address Housing Crisis ​ CHA announces its intention to pursue two crucial ballot measures in November 2024 to tackle the housing crisis gripping Chaffee County. With the aim of securing vital resources for housing programs and projects, CHA is advocating for the elimination of current Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR) spending limits and the implementation of a modest sales tax increase. ​ The proposed measures are as follows: ​ De-Brucing Question: The de-brucing measure allows CHA to keep state, local and grant funding and intergovernmental revenues above the constitutional TABOR caps, while not increasing or changing existing taxes for and has no impact to County taxpayers or property owners. If the de-brucing measure passes, CHA can proceed with the plan to continue construction on Jane’s Place that would likely commence in early 2025. ​ Chaffee County, the City of Salida, the Town of Buena Vista, the Town of Poncha Springs, and both local school districts, along with most jurisdictions across the State of Colorado, have all sought and received voter approval to de-bruce since TABOR passed in 1992. ​ Sales Tax Increase: CHA proposes a 0.50% (half percent) sales tax within Salida, Buena Vista, and unincorporated Chaffee County, with a 10-year sunset provision. Estimated to generate $3.5 million annually through 2035, this tax will fund CHA programs and projects aimed at bolstering affordable housing and housing security within the community. ​ CHA conducted a survey of Chaffee County residents in February 2024 to better understand the community’s desire to create a designated funding source for housing projects in the County. The survey showed that 59% of respondents support a 0.50% (half-percent) sales tax increase, which would generate $3.5 million dollars a year to fund affordable housing construction projects and expand programming to help solve the affordable housing crisis in Chaffee County. ​ The CHA's decision to pursue these ballot measures underscores the urgency of addressing the housing crisis in Chaffee County. With the gap between housing demand and supply widening, and a significant portion of residents struggling with affordability, action is urgently needed. ​ CHA plans to commence public outreach efforts to inform residents about the TABOR circumstances and the ballot measure requests. Additionally, the governing bodies of CHA's member jurisdictions will be required to vote and adopt resolutions to refer the proposed measures to the November ballot. ​ CHA would leverage these funds to partner with developers and the community to construct or secure up to 200 affordable housing units over 10 years utilizing strategies that have been effectively used in other rural resort mountain communities. These strategies could include: ​ Partnering with developers to subsidize their affordable housing developments to improve housing costs affordability. Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) incentives for homeowners wishing to build deed restricted ADUs. Land banking for future affordable or inclusionary housing projects. Repurposing motels or commercial space to apartments. Converting existing units to deed restricted units through a buy down program. Rental subsidy and a down payment assistance programs.
