If you're interested in forming a housing cooperative under the ordinance recently adopted by the City of Boulder, you've come to the right place!
To get a co-op license, you'll need to be certified by an "Expert Cooperative Housing Organization" (or ECHO) which has been designated by the City, like the Boulder Housing Coalition (BHC). If you'd like to work with the BHC to get certified as a co-op as part of your application to the City, fill out this form, and we'll get the ball rolling. This form should only take a couple of minutes to fill out, and is only the first step in a much longer process.
If you have additional questions or want to reach out to the folks at the BHC who are working on co-op certification, you can send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
. We are a committee of the unpaid board of the BHC, supported by a single staff person. Most of us have lived in housing co-ops for many years, and we're excited to help foster new co-ops in Boulder and do whatever we can to ensure they thrive!
