Our Work in DenverDenver serves as the home for Enterprise’s Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) initiative, where our team focuses on ensuring that low-income people benefit from the regions’ public transportation expansion. We work to ensure that quality affordable housing exists in close proximity to transit so that residents have affordable access to employment, education, healthy food, health care and community services.
Denver is a logical location for these efforts, as the region is in the midst of a $6.7 billion transit infrastructure improvement project known as FasTracks. The Denver office is engaged in two primary efforts, the Denver TOD Fund and the Mile High Transit Opportunity Collaborative.
The Denver TOD Fund is a $15 million acquisition fund launched in 2010 in partnership with Urban Land Conservancy, City of Denver, Colorado Housing and Finance Authority, Mile High Community Loan Fund, local and national foundations and national banks with a local presence.
- Mile High Connects is a newly launched partnership between local and national nonprofits and family, community and corporative foundations. MHC’s mission is to ensure that Metro Denver’s regional transit system provides access and opportunities for all communities in the Mile High Region.
