The DESCI Community Housing Program provides monthly portable rent subsidies to eligible Denver Public Schools’ employees, and retirees and members of their immediate families ages 60 and above.
Program participants receive a monthly rental subsidy up to $350 a month. If approved, the rent subsidy will be paid directly to the participant’s property owner/manager and may be used for any property in the Denver Metropolitan area, provided it meets The Denver Foundation’s criteria. The property owner/manager must agree in writing to accept the rent subsidy payment directly.
Rent subsidies are generally awarded in 24-month cycles. There is no limit to the number of times a participant may renew the subsidy, pending verification of continued eligibility.
