From North Denver News:
The Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) Division of Housing (DOH) awarded $4.47M through the Colorado State Housing Board (SHB) for affordable housing in September.
DOLA also so far has supplied over $7.49M to renters and landlords across Colorado through the EHAP and POP programs since Governor Jared Polis signed Executive Order 70 in May and HB1410 in June, authorizing DOH to provide up to $29.65M in COVID-19-related housing payment relief.
DOH granted the Housing Authority of the City and County of Denver (DHA) $1M to assist with the acquisition and adaptive reuse of a vacant office building at the corner of Speer and South Broadway, adjacent to Denver Health’s newly upgraded hospital campus. The repurposed building will provide 110 affordable units for seniors with incomes below 60 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI), or residents who are disabled. 655 Broadway will include 96 one-bedroom units for individuals with incomes between 30 – 60 percent of the AMI, and 14 single room occupancy (SRO) units for people below 30 percent of the AMI. The SRO units will serve as transitional housing for homeless individuals with disabilities.
