Our 2017 Summit convened 540 public, private, nonprofit sector, and community leaders from across the Denver metropolitan area to discuss policy tools and investment strategies to create and preserve affordable housing throughout the region.

The day's work combined plenary sessions that placed affordable housing in a broader context of economic mobility and our identity as a region with four breakout tracks that focused on identifying policy, programmatic, and investment strategies to create and preserve affordable housing across the region. The four breakout sessions--gentrification, the preservation of affordable housing, homeownership, and access to opportunity--took place throughout the morning, and were designed to provide a space for our region's housing stakeholders to dig deep and plan action.
