Affordable Housing Multi-modal Toolkit

Program Summary

eGo CarShare was awarded a Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant through Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) for 2014-2015 to create “Multi-modal Toolkits” for residents in various affordable housing neighborhoods in Boulder and Denver. Partial matching funding is being provided by Mile High Connects and The Denver Foundation. eGo will partner with Boulder Housing Partners (BHP), Denver Housing Authority (DHA) and Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver (HFHMD) to provide select households with significantly subsidized monthly transit passes, easy access to carsharing at discounted rates, free or discounted B-cycle memberships and/or access to pool bikes, and education about the multi-modal transportation options available to them. The program began in the spring of 2014 and will run through February 2016.
