Increasing the stock of Affordable Housing in Arvada and Jefferson County
This is needed for all residents (seniors, workforce including working families, those with disabilities).
The income gap between the wealthiest Americans and the rest of us has been increasing over the years, and we are striving for more equity. Affordable housing is a key issue in preventing homelessness in our communities. We meet with the City of Arvada to discuss options for increasing affordable housing and encourage them to work with other partners (e.g. AURA), We sponsored a Housing Resource Fair in September 2018, to educate low-middle income Arvada residents about existing programs to help them with housing needs.
