Summary

Currently, under the state constitution, property that is used exclusively for charitable purposes is exempt from property tax. This bill modifies that exemption, and allows property that is leased for child care providers to be exempt from property tax. 

Position

The Colorado Children’s Campaign supports this bill. This is a strategy to address the statewide shortage of licensed child care capacity. By reducing the costs of leasing to child care providers and increasing the incentives for developers to plan for child care access, this can be part of a larger set of strategies to address the child care deserts that exist in communities throughout the state. 

Current Status

The bill passed out of the House Behavioral & Public Health & Human Services Committee on an 11-1 bipartisan vote and now heads to the House Appropriations Committee.
