Colorado is facing a housing shortage and voters in the state are taking action. A measure passed in November 2022 allocating 0.1% of state income revenue to cover affordable housing projects, making way for the Innovative Housing Incentive Program. The program was announced on January 13th, 2022,and aims to support Colorado-based manufacturers that build innovative housing - using methods that range from volumetric modular, panelization, 3D printing, and more.
