Topic: Financing

We are excited to announce that the Chaffee County Office of Housing has partnered with our Small Business Development Center, our Economic Development Corp., and the UAACOG Development Corp, to host a conference we are calling: “Access to Money and Resources.” This conference will be held April 27 – 28, 2020 at Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort, and we are pleased to host the following keynote speakers: - Betsy Markey, Executive Director of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, and - Rick Garcia, Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Local Affairs. Perhaps even more exciting, is that the intent of the conference is to link entrepreneurs with financial capital to bring their ideas to fruition. Day one of the conference will have time dedicated to let lenders, investors, and other supportive organizations showcase their products, including loans, grants, and investments. Day two, will have time dedicated for people like you to present your housing and/or business development ideas in front of this room full of people with the capital and other resources to bring your ideas to fruition. You must register to speak via emailing This innovative approach to getting small-scale development projects funded has gained the attention of the Colorado Housing Finance Authority, who is co-sponsoring the event – as well as the attention of local, state-wide, regional, and national capital lenders and investors. Let’s get your project funded! Whether you have a housing development idea, an innovative construction technique, or a small business, we want to help you get you in front of this room of experts.
