A modest win for Colorado’s manufactured homebuyers

On Thursday, May 24, Gov. John Hickenlooper signed into law House Bill 1315, a measure that exempts the purchase of a new manufactured home from the state sales tax.

Developed by CCLP, this policy will save nearly 1,000 low-and moderate-income homebuyers a year about $1,000 on the purchase of a new manufactured home, beginning July 2019. While the legislation isn’t the silver bullet to Colorado’s affordable housing shortage, it represents a good first step in bringing manufactured housing into the larger discussion on affordable housing.

To learn more about this critical affordable housing stock and the implications of HB1315, read this op-ed in The Denver Post on April 6, 2018, written by former CCLP Policy Analyst Kristopher Grant, who also developed and built support for HB 1315.
