Space to Create Colorado Builds Ouray County's First Affordable Housing Project

Space to Create is a state led program to create affordable housing and work spaces for people in creative industries. To be eligible for the program, areas must be state-certified creative districts, have populations of less than 50,000 in rural areas, and strong local support and leadership, which have been crucial to moving projects forward. Projects are supported by a nonprofit developer and federal low-income tax credits provide the primary funding source. The project in Trinidad created 41-units of affordable live-work spaces downtown, including 20,000 square feet of community space.
