DOH Special Update
Emergency Rental Assistance
The Colorado Department of Local Affairs' Division of Housing has launched the Property Owner Preservation program in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, to allocate up to $20 million in federal CARES Act funds for rental assistance to landlords on behalf of their tenants.
To Qualify for the Property Owner Preservation (POP) program:
  • Your tenants complete applications stating that they were unable to pay rent because they experienced financial need due to COVID-19.
  • The rent for the unit for which assistance is requested is set at or below the POP maximum rent listed here.
  • All reasonable mobile home lot rents qualify.
  • The rental unit or mobile home park meet basic health and safety requirements. Self certification is required.
  • Your property is not in foreclosure (if it is, a receivership has been established by the courts) and your state and local real estate taxes have been paid.
  • You agree to all program requirements and provide the proper documentation. 
Property Owners can apply on behalf of all residents owing rent due to the impacts of COVID-19. However, properties with just a few residents delinquent on rent, may consider referring those residents to the Emergency Housing Assistance Program (EHAP), included at the link below.
