Homeownership Programs

The City of Boulder is committed to making homes in our community available to a variety of people. We offer opportunities for homeownership to those with low, moderate and middle incomes.

Free classes are available online and in-person to help people better understand the programs and home buying process. If you move forward with an application some of these classes are required.

Partner Programs

Buyers in our programs also may take advantage of these partner programs when buying a home.
