Connections works closely with our partners at the Colorado Department of Local Affairs, Division of Housing, to secure Housing Choice Vouchers (termed as Section 8 housing) for persons who live with disabling conditions. This program provides assistance to the individual, allowing for lower rental fees based upon gross income.
While we specifically serve individuals within our seven county, northeastern Colorado service region, we can also assist other Colorado residents.
There are specific forms that must be completed and filed to join our housing wait list. Note that our wait list is closed. If it will be helpful, you may schedule an appointment for personal consultation and assistance by telephone, online video, and in-person at our Greeley office. Call us at (970) 352-8682.
