Summer has been a busy time for DMFHC leading up to an eventful fall! We are excited for the many opportunities to connect with our friends and partners to build stronger, inclusive communities.
DMFHC is excited to announce that we have been awarded our first 3-Year Private Enforcement Initiative grant totaling $279,784.00 annually through HUD
. DMFHC was one of over 100 organizations chosen for this highly competitive grant. This funding ensures DMFHC the long-term stability required to successfully operate a full service fair housing center in the region. Thank you for the continued support, we would not have been able to grow so quickly without our partners.
On November 12th and 13th
join us for a free Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Summit
at the History Colorado Center
. This event is sponsored by HUD and will feature national speakers and local community leaders. November 12th
will be an all-day event open to all jurisdictions, agencies, and community stakeholders to discuss ways we can work together to Affirmatively Further Fair Housing and build strong, thriving communities. November 13th
will be a half-day morning session open to local jurisdictions interested in a technical training discussing the new AFFH rule, available data tools, and analysis techniques. Both days will be free and will include meals, refreshments, and museum entry. An event invitation will be released next week with further details and information on how to RSVP.

DMFHC will be moving into a new building in November 2015
. We are moving to Downing St. and Martin Luther King Blvd. in Denver’s Five Points neighborhood. DMFHC is excited to join such a historically important neighborhood in our community. Throughout the early 1900s Five Points was a thriving African American community in a time when discriminatory laws prevented black families from living in other neighborhoods. Five points was a bustling business district and known nationally for its jazz music scene. DMFHC is happy to have the opportunity to add to the history of this neighborhood. We will announce an open house and the exact date our address will change soon!
