Housing Programs

Summit County has two programs specifically developed to provide and maintain workforce housing in Summit County.

Lease to Locals

In the Lease to Locals pilot program, the County & Town of Breckenridge have partnered to provide property managers and property owners with generous cash incentives to convert their short-term rentals into seasonal and long-term rentals, to be occupied be the local workforce. The goal of the pilot program is to convert up to 100 units this winter and build on the program for summer 2022.

Buy-Down Program

In the Buy-Down program the County purchases a market rate unit, deed restricts the unit to be occupied by a member of the local workforce, then resales the newly deed restricted unit at a below market sales price.

Housing Helps

In Housing Helps the County pays an owner to place a deed restriction on their home. The restriction requires a local worker to occupy the unit and has no rent or appreciation cap.
