Congress pledged in the Housing Act of 1949, “a decent home and suitable living environment for every American family.” El Paso County supports a variety of options from single-family to multi-family; urban to rural; both rental and owner-occupied. The El Paso County Housing Authority was established in 1993 with a mission of addressing housing issues of low-to-moderate income residents. We provide Housing Programs that work with developers on affordable housing projects as well as homebuyers who need downpayment assistance. Housing is an essential and vital asset to El Paso County.
