MHC Partner Highlight – Denver Regional Council of Governments

by | Sep 7, 2016

The Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) is one of the nation’s oldest councils of governments and serves the region as a planning organization, technical assistance provider and forum for visionary local governments. Through a strong focus on regional growth and development and transportation, DRCOG is deeply invested in improving mobility choices for people of all ages, incomes and abilities, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and increasing access to opportunity.  Partnering with Mile High connects furthers DRCOG’s efforts to connect local governments, stakeholders, and the public to accessible data and information.

Launched in 2014, the online Denver Regional Equity Atlas has continued as an ongoing partnership between DRCOG, MHC and the Piton Foundation to help raise awareness about the benefits and opportunities that a robust public transportation network can create. The Atlas emphasizes the need to ensure access to opportunity for everyone in the region, especially improving connections for the region’s low-income residents.

Throughout the past year, DRCOG and MHC have partnered again to develop and fine tune a new online application called the Development Project Pipeline. The pipeline application will connect developers with investors in the Denver region, creating an environment that can formally and predictably support impact investments that have far reaching community benefits. Of particular interest are development opportunities that leverage the transit system and influence positive change in areas such as affordable housing, economic opportunity and healthy communities.
