Bilingual Housing Fair in Longmont
Boulder County Housing Authority sponsored the fifth annual Bilingual
Housing Fair on Saturday, June 7th. The event, held at the Longmont

for answers to their homebuying questions. A workshop, Learning About
Affordable Housing Assistance Programs, was well-attended and offered
information about homebuyer assistance programs in Boulder County.
