The Regional Housing Alliance (RHA) offers mortgage assistance as well as pre-purchase counseling and education to La Plata County residents to help reduce the cost of purchasing a home.

About the RHA:
The RHA is a multi-jurisdictional housing authority funded by La Plata County, the City of Durango and the Towns of Bayfield and Ignacio, which leverages local dollars to increase available resources for housing in La Plata County. The RHA’s programs aim to increase resources for housing by filling the gap between what a family can afford and current home prices.

We collaborate with other housing organizations in the region to create housing needs studies, coordinated housing action plans, and conduits to new sources of funding. We also administer developer contribution agreements on behalf of La Plata County and the City of Durango that support construction of affordable homes, rental units and special needs housing.
