In 2011, the City and County of Denver, along with its partners, received a joint U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Community Challenge Grant ($1.8 million) and U.S. Department of Transportation TIGER Grant ($1.2 million). Together, this grant was the foundation for the Denver Livability Partnership (DLP). The DLP worked to expand permanent affordable housing, improve access to jobs and create better multi-modal connectivity along Denver’s transit corridors. The federal funding allowed Denver to leverage partnerships and opportunities along the west light rail corridor to transform Denver’s west side into livable, transit-oriented neighborhoods. Through capacity-building and knowledge sharing, best practices will now be applied to other corridors in Denver, in the region and nationwide. Denver’s work, made possible by the Sustainable Communities Planning Grant, sets a national model for effective and comprehensive planning along a transit system.
Thanks to our partners, a robust public outreach process, and the support of city leaders, the Denver Livability Partnership completed its mission in 2014 and is happy to share its final reports and studies here. We look forward to building on the momentum we’ve recently built, to further expand permanent affordable housing, improve access to jobs and create better multi-modal connectivity along Denver’s transit corridors.
