Renting Information

We won’t lie. Finding housing can be one of the hardest parts about re-entry, especially if you’ve been in prison for a long time. does not have a list of places where you can rent. We wish we did. However, several resources below, such as Colorado Housing Connects, may help you find a place to rent. Many people find housing through their networks and word-of-mouth, referrals from re-entry organizations, or just driving through a neighborhood looking for “For Rent” signs.

If you’re already a renter but have difficulty with a landlord or eviction, several advocacy organizations are also listed below.

The Help section provides advice to help you find a place to rent (don’t overlook the value of working with a re-entry organization!), as well as advice about leases, being a renter, and more.

Emergency Rental Assistance due to COVID-19


In mid July Gov. Polis announced an emergency rental assistance program that helps both landlords and tenants. One program, the Property Owner Preservation (POP) Program, helps landlords whose tenants can't pay their rent due to COVID-19. The other program, Emergency Housing Assistance, helps tenants who can't pay their rent due to COVID-19. Click on the website link to learn about both programs and how to apply. If you're looking for rental assistance, you'll need to apply through an agency. Call 211 to find an agency.
