Housing is often a family’s biggest monthly expense. When that cost is too high, little is left for food, healthcare, clothing, education, transportation and other necessities. The focus of Affordable Housing is to provide options for families making 80% or less of the Area Median Income, ensuring that their housing cost is no more than 1/3 of their income. Households paying more than that are considered cost burdened and paying more than 50% on housing is considered severely cost-burdened.

Multifamily Housing Shortage

According to the HomeCOS Plan, “The housing stock in Colorado Springs is predominately single family homes (62%), while town-homes, condominiums and small multifamily properties, also known as the “Missing Middle”, make up just 19% of the housing stock.”

Area Median Income

The Area Median Income or AMI (updated annually) for a family of four in Colorado Springs is $82,400. As an affordable housing provider, Greccio serves those residents making 80% or less of AMI. 82% of our residents live on 50% of AMI. 59% of families living with Greccio are single-parent households, roughly 55% of the heads of household are female, 26% of the residents are children age birth to seventeen years, and 29% are seniors.

“You’ve been so instrumental with my stability. I don’t know where i’d be without Greccio. I couldn’t believe the kindness of people that didn’t know me.”
