C.R.S. Section 24-56-106
Relocation assistance advisory programs


Whenever a displacing agency acquires real property for a program or project for which federal financial assistance will be available to pay all or any part of the cost of the program or project and such acquisition will result in the displacement of any person, the acquiring agency shall provide a relocation assistance advisory program for displaced persons which offers the services prescribed in this section. If the acquiring agency determines that any person occupying property immediately adjacent to the real property acquired is caused substantial economic injury because of the acquisition, it may offer such person relocation advisory services under such program.


Each relocation assistance program required by subsection (1) of this section shall include such measures, facilities, or services as may be necessary or appropriate in order to determine, and make timely recommendations on, the needs and preferences, if any, of displaced persons, business concerns, and nonprofit organizations for relocation assistance; to assist owners of displaced businesses and farm operations in obtaining and becoming established in suitable business locations or replacement farms; to supply information concerning programs of the federal, state, and local governments offering assistance to displaced persons and business concerns and technical assistance to such persons in applying for assistance under such programs; to provide current and continuing information on the availability, sales prices, and rental charges of comparable replacement dwellings for displaced homeowners and tenants and suitable locations for businesses and farm operations; to assist in minimizing hardships to displaced persons in adjusting to relocation; and to secure, to the greatest extent practicable, the coordination of relocation activities with other project activities and other planned or proposed governmental actions in the community or nearby areas which may affect the carrying out of the relocation program.


Notwithstanding the provisions of section 24-56-102 (2)(b)(II), in any case in which a displacing agency acquires property for a program or project, any person who occupies such property on a rental basis for a short term or a period subject to termination when the property is needed for the program or project shall be eligible for advisory services to the extent determined by the displacing agency.
