Jared Polis on Welfare & Poverty



Funded more than 14,000 units of affordable housing

We've lowered housing costs by funding more than 14,000 units of affordable housing in the last year, saving families more than $72 million annually. And we are ready to do more. Rising housing costs are pricing people out of neighborhoods they've lived in for years. I look forward to building on the incredible work of the bi-partisan Affordable Housing Transformational Task Force, to create stronger, healthier, and more affordable communities.
