Summit County, in partnership with the Town of Breckenridge, launched the Lease to Locals program in Fall 2021. Lease to Locals was created as a short-term strategy for Summit County's Housing Crisis that incentivized owners to move from short-term renting to long-term renting to our local workforce. Due to the high expense of the program and additional workforce housing becoming available, in 2024 the Lease to Locals program will come to an end.
However, Summit County is actively working to bring forward a new Business Master Lease program in Fall 2024 to facilitate incentives for employers to subsidize housing for local workers. The future Business Master Lease program guidelines will be developed over the next several months and reviewed by the Board of County Commissioners at a future work session.
