Philanthropy Colorado is highlighting efforts to Reshape Housing Affordability and Sustainability in Colorado, including a discussion this week on housing policy take-aways from the last legislative session and of a current state ballot proposal on dedicated funding for affordable housing.
Funders may be interested in the Colorado General Assembly’s Affordable Housing Transformational Task Force Report from February 2022, unveiling the state’s $400 million affordable housing plan.
Common Sense Institute’s Colorado Affordable Housing Trends from March of this year shares valuable findings.
At our coming housing program, Mike Johnson and his team from Gary Community Ventures will share their work on Colorado Ballot Proposal 2021-2022 #108 – Dedicated State Income Tax Revenue for Affordable Housing Programs. The funding proposal would create a state affordable housing fund supported by one-tenth of one percent (one penny on every $10.00) of individual and corporate federal taxable income. The proposal is currently in the signature collection process, with a deadline of August 8, 2022.
