CCG, Allies Secure $29.1M in Emergency Rental Aid to Keep 6K Families Housed

On Tuesday, Coloradans for the Common Good (CCG) leaders gathered with allies from the Denver Metro Tenants Union and the Community Economic Defense Project, in addition to the Denver Mayor and 8 members of Denver City Council, to celebrate the city's historic investment of $29.1 Million in emergency rental assistance.

This investment is expected to keep 6,000 families housed who would otherwise face eviction and comes after months of CCG organizing, including a mayoral forum in May with 350 attendees, a press conference on the issue, and countless phone calls, emails, and meetings with elected officials.

Mayor Mike Johnston thanked CCG for leading on this issue and called the effort "community organizing at its best." CCG leaders recognized Mayor Johnston and the Denver City Council, particularly Councilwomen Serena Gonzales-Gutierrez, Shontel Lewis, and Sarah Parady, for their hard work alongside the community.
