Economic Health and Housing

Welcome to City of Greeley’s Department of Economic Health and Housing (EHH). We are proud to represent one of the fastest growing and progressive communities in northern Colorado. With a population approaching 110,000, our community in 2018 was ranked #1 by Wallethub. for ‘Jobs and the Economy’ among 515 cities nationally, and the Greeley Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) was ranked by Forbes Magazine as the #6 fastest ‘Job Growth’ market in the country.

We have matched this recent growth and energy with a high-performing Economic Health and Housing team to continue to move Greeley’s economy forward. With creativity, critical thinking and open communication, we have a passion for promoting growth and development in a public service setting. Our department consists of qualified specialists in two divisions: Economic Development and Urban Renewal.

Whether your business is already located here in Greeley and looking to expand, or you’re considering a move to our community, we are here to provide the resources and support to ensure your success.

From business and industry intelligence to demographic and workforce trends, we would love to share with you what’s great about our local and regional economy and how your business will grow and thrive in Greeley. We also maintain a real estate database of available land and buildings to help you find your next location.

We have friends in lots of places.

We are proud of the relationships we have developed in the community, region and state, including partnerships with the following entities:

We have heart.

Through the Greeley Urban Renewal Authority (GURA), we manage programs to provide a wide range of housing and neighborhood assistance to individuals with lower incomes and manage commercial rehabilitation and development within our urban renewal boundaries. We believe in taking care of the heart of our city and are proud of the significant capital investment that has occurred in our core. We expect this trend to continue.

Sweeten the deal.

We have an array of helpful tools and incentives to help your business grow, including grants, development fee waivers, tax refunds, and competitive pricing for raw water. Tell us about the project you are contemplating, and depending on qualifications, we just might be able to help you get it to the finish line.
