The Colorado Foreclosure Hotline was established as a public-private partnership. Discussions began in late 2005, and in 2006, the Blue Ribbon Panel on Housing, composed of various housing industry professionals, identified a foreclosure crisis on the rise.
The panel also identified the effectiveness of HUD-approved housing counseling, and acknowledged that a unified network of such agencies would be essential in combating the foreclosure problem.
The Colorado Foreclosure Hotline was created as a central point of contact for homeowners in danger of foreclosure, and as a means for connecting those homeowners to a HUD-approved housing counseling agency in their community.
