Grand Junction is committed to enacting housing policies and partnering with outside organizations that seek to increase affordable housing options, diversify housing choice, decrease the gap between need and housing inventory, and assist those without homes to access supportive services.

Grand Valley Housing Needs Assessment and Strategy

In December 2020, the City and its partners began work with Root Policy Research, a Colorado consultancy with extensive experience in the housing field, on the Grand Valley Housing Needs Assessment (PDF). In May 2021, the Housing Needs Assessment was completed, which included data collection, a community-wide survey, and a series of focus group meetings with key stakeholders. The Assessment then informed the creation of a City of Grand Junction Housing Strategy. After multiple workshops, the City Council adopted Resolution 82-21 (PDF) on October 6, 2021, the Housing Strategy. Later, on December 21, 2022, the City adopted Resolution 96-22 (PDF), which added a thirteenth housing strategy to promote community engagement and education around housing.

The thirteen housing strategies adopted by City Council are as follows:

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4
  5. 5
  6. 6
  7. 7
