Section 4 Recipient Spotlight: Ute Mountain Housing Authority (Colorado)
Proven and effective, Section 4 – officially, the federal Section 4 Capacity Building for Community Development and Affordable Housing Program – strengthens local organizations across the country. Through its annual grants, the program helps organizations find new solutions to create affordable homes and healthy neighborhoods for families, seniors, veterans, people with disabilities and other low-income people.
Together with our local partners, Enterprise is multiplying the impact of local affordable housing development and helping families succeed. This case study documents how Ute Mountain Housing Authority used a Section 4 grant from Enterprise to help them navigate the complex PSH development process – the first ever supportive housing project on Tribal lands in Colorado. Through intense work and engagement with the community, UMHA produced a plan for 11 new PSH homes with full state and tribal support.
