The DESCI Community Housing Program provides monthly portable rent subsidies to qualified low-income Denver Public Schools’ employees, retirees, and members of their immediate families ages 60 and above.
The DESCI Community Housing Program provides up to $300 monthly to qualified applicants. If approved, the rent subsidy will be paid directly to the applicant’s landlord and may be used for any property in the Denver metropolitan area, provided it meets The Denver Foundation’s criteria. The landlord must agree in writing to accept the rent subsidy payment directly.
Rent subsidies are generally awarded for a 2-year period. Subsidy recipients must provide evidence of their continued eligibility on a bi-annual basis.
