Thank you for your interest in Rio Grande Village, a new rental community located just minutes from the heart of downtown Colorado Springs, and is within walking distance to public transportation, parks, shopping, and a day care center. Rio Grande Village has been designed for working income households and is referred to as a Workforce Rent Community.

The community is owned and operated by the Colorado Springs Housing Authority.

Each building has the look of a large Prairie Style home, but actually consists of 5 individual units, each with its own private entrance. Each unit has either one or two bedrooms, washer and dryer hook-ups, refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave oven, storage, and ceiling fans in the living rooms and bedrooms, as well as carpeting throughout.

The community contains 100 rental units - 90 units in 18 buildings, and 10 individual cottage-style two-bedroom units.

Market rents are $675 for a one bedroom unit and $775 for a two bedroom unit. The cottages rent for $920 and are not included in the rent based on moderate income. Security deposits are $200 and $400 respectively. Households are responsible for gas and electric. Water, sewer, and trash removal are provided.

There are a limited number of units set aside for those households with moderate incomes. These units will be available at less than market rent.

To be eligible for less than market rent, incomes for a single person range from $17,150 to $34,320 per year. If you make more than $34,320 you would be required to pay market rent. Income for two person households range from $19,590 to $39,180 in order to be eligible for reduced rents, and income for three person households range from $22,050 to $44,100.

All one bedroom units are located on ground level. Some of the one bedroom units are also ADA compliant.
