We want your ideas and experiences.



Grants, loans, land and expertise.



    TCH will help the region examine housing issues by providing data, expertise and technical information to the discussion. Through networking with others working on housing, we will provide better understanding and move solutions forward.



    Opportunity Fund

    Renters and buyers in our community are challenged not only in securing affordable housing, but also financing it. TCH has established the Housing Opportunity Fund to provide grant and loan support to qualified individuals to defray the costs of obtaining housing and moving – for both buyers and renters.



    Land Banking

    Land available for affordable housing in the Telluride region is limited. TCH will purchase land or work with landowners on land donations. TCH can nimbly and creatively acquire land and bank it for future projects. Similar techniques have successfully been used to preserve land for open space in the Telluride region.
