DENVER, CO — FEB. 26 — The City of Denver and Enterprise Community Partners were named today to receive $2.25 million in funding by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to support affordable housing rental preservation for Denver families near mass transit. The funding invests into the City’s soon to be established Denver Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Fund, which is targeting to preserve and create at least 1,200 units of affordable for sale and rental housing along Denver mass transit corridors over a ten-year period. As the Denver metropolitan area undergoes what is considered to be the largest expansion in the nation of a transit system, this new MacArthur Foundation investment will help preserve and create affordable housing within one half mile of rail service and a quarter mile from frequent bus routes.
