  • CPLP Receives Grant from Rose Community Foundation for Undocumented Housing Program

    CPLP is honored to be the recipient of a generous grant from Rose Community Foundation to support the Undocumented Housing Program, which will help us provide housing and eviction protection legal services to undocumented residents living in mobile homes. Thank you for believing that no one should become homeless for lack of housing justice--we're truly grateful for your support.

  • Supporting Neighbors like Josie on Colorado Gives Day

    Josie, a single mother, came to CPLP to advocate for herself after her landlord wrongfully issued illegal late fees. CPLP was able to explain the legal violations to the landlord and demanded that Josie be reimbursed $675 for late fees and penalties. Her landlord complied, and Josie and her children were able to use that money towards other necessities like groceries, utilities, and bills. As we approach Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, December 6th, your gift will go even further to support neighbors like Josie. On the first Tuesday of December since 2010, Coloradans have come together to support the nonprofits that make a difference in our lives. Colorado Gives Day has grown to be Colorado's largest 24-hour giving event, raising more than $362 million for nonprofits across the state since it began. Every gift made from November 1st - December 6th through our online portal at ColoradoGives.org/ColoradoPovertyLawProject will be boosted by the $1.4 Million incentive fund, meaning your donation will go even further to support Coloradans in need!

  • Voting While Experiencing Housing Uncertainty

    To register to vote, you need: Basic identification information Colorado residency (established through a physical address) While Going Through an Eviction Facing eviction does not impact a voter’s ability to register at the address subject to eviction proceedings. An eviction proceeding impacts registration only after a voter is physically removed from their residence by the sheriff following a court order. The following stages in the eviction process require no changes to voter registration: Receipt of a Demand for Rent or Possession Receipt of a Summons & Complaint in Unlawful Detainer Receipt of notice of judicial hearing Registering Without a Fixed Permanent Home Unhoused voters can register to vote in Colorado. For purposes of voter registration, a person experiencing housing instability can list the address of a place to which they regularly return or intend to remain. This is the voter’s home base. A home base can be any place with a physical mailing address, including: Park Shelter Vacant lot Campground PO box Residential facility The purpose of providing a mailing address is to enable unhoused voters to receive ballots by mail. A voter always has the option of casting a ballot in person on Election Day regardless of their ability to receive mail, but must provide a physical mailing address to register. Acceptable Forms of Identification Colorado driver’s license or photo ID card Valid US Passport Colorado public employee ID card Valid pilot’s license Valid US military ID card Copy of current (within 60 days) utility bill, bank statement, government-issued check, paycheck, or other government document with voter’s name and registration address Certificate of Degree of Indian or Alaskan Blood Certified copy of US birth certificate Certified document of naturalization Valid student ID card from a Colorado institution of higher education Valid ID card from US Department of Veterans Affairs Valid ID card from federally recognized tribal nation Verification that voter is a resident of a group residential facility The deadline to register to vote in Colorado is November 8, 2022.
