PROJECTS AND PLANS

 

Eviction Legal Defense Pilot

 

All 13 City Council members collectively donated $131,500 to Denver's first Eviction legal defense pilot. The Pilot will provide legal services to income qualified folks facing eviction. The free legal help, provided by Colorado Legal Services and other legal providers, has two goals — help those facing eviction stay housed or reduce the barriers for evicted tenants to find future housing.





 

 

Ending Discrimination based on Source of Income

Our office along with our community partners are working together to update Denver's non-discrimination ordinance to include Source of Income protections. Source of Income discrimination happens when a renter is turned away from housing based on the type of income they receive, such as social security, disability benefits, section 8 vouchers etc.  A renter should not be turned away from housing they could otherwise afford based on the type of income they receive.



 

 

Construction Apprenticeships and Targeted Hiring 

Considering Denver’s construction boom and labor shortage, Targeted Hiring will offer a path for Denver’s most economically vulnerable residents to find a livable wage job and a career in construction.
