Too many Denver residents lack the simple advantages many of us take for granted, like a place to call home. Housing costs, both rent and for sale, have risen dramatically. Even with robust construction, Denver's supply of housing has been unable to keep pace with demand. Today, affordability is simply not within reach, even for many working families.

Denver launched its first-ever Dedicated Fund for Housing in January 2017, and is creating robust, expanded initiatives to close this housing gap. A multi-sector Housing Advisory Committee has been formed as well to ensure that the best of our local wisdom, experience, and housing expertise can help steer this critical work forward.

The committee provides essential strategic input on uses of the dedicated fund. Recommendations from the group are helping inform annual affordable housing priorities as well as our five-year comprehensive housing plan for the city.

A person may become a member of the Housing Advisory Committee three ways:  by virtue of his/her professional role (ex-officio), by appointment by the Mayor, or by appointment by City Council. Appointments are staggered across one-, two-, and three-year terms.
