DOLA updates Duplication of Benefits guidance to align with HUD requirements

DOLA logo

The Department of Local Affairs Housing Recovery Program (HRP) has updated Duplication of Benefits guidance on their website to reflect that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has determined that the State of Colorado Sales and Use Tax Refund for Rebuilding after a Declared Wildfire Disaster, Boulder County Use Tax Rebate Program, and local municipality use tax and fee rebates are duplicative of the assistance provided through the HRP. Therefore, Impact Development Fund will now include the State sales tax refund and the use tax and fee rebates in the duplication of benefits calculation process. This means that applicants who receive these forms of assistance may have their HRP benefits adjusted accordingly. Learn more about Duplication of Benefits.
