Gentrification Impacts

Gentrification impacts Denver Metro making affordable housing for middle and low income folks a requirement.

  • More affordable housing for folks who make less than 60% of the area’s median income (AMI).
  • Utilize more Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) development in lower-income neighborhoods which increases housing prices, lowers crime rates and attracts racially and economically diverse populations.
  • Supports Housing First Initiative which moves homeless people off streets into apartments.
