Edit this fund

The Denver TOD Fund (the Fund) is the first affordable housing-focused structured acquisition revolving loan fund in the country. Its investment strategy focuses on creating and preserving affordable housing near transit by acquiring and preserving strategic properties in transit corridors.

The Fund's design answers the social need to provide and preserve homes near transit for low-income households, who on average spend 60% of their gross income on housing and transportation expenses combined.

Originally capitalized at $15 million in April 2010, the Fund is seeking another $15 million to facilitate regional expansion and leverage over $500 million in local economic development.

Enterprise, along with The Urban Land Conservancy (ULC), the City of Denver, and its key partners, the City of Denver and its local and national partners bring together a combined expertise and knowledge of financing community development and ensuring that the benefits of expanded public transportation will be available for all residents.

The Fund currently seeks $2-$3M in near-equity investments from institutional and foundation investors. If successfully raised, the Fund will seek Charitable Purpose and Senior Debt investments to fill out the capital stack.

Impact Performance


Impact thesis

The TOD Fund has already created or preserved nearly 450 affordable homes, a new public library, and several thousand square feet of community-focused commercial space. The Fund seeks to preserve at least 1000 in Denver over its life, and hopes to preserve 1000 more if expanded.
Enterprise Community Partners connects development capital with advisory solutions to provide a bridge to economic opportunities across all 50 US states. Although the majority of our investment strategy finances affordable housing, we also invest in community development opportunities that compliment our work. By recognizing that a community requires more than housing, we support infrastructure development for healthcare centers, charter schools and other community facilities.
We believe a central piece to building a strong community requires everyone having access to decent, healthy affordable housing. Enterprise Community Partners has raised over USD 13 billion in equity, grants and loans to help build or preserve nearly 300,000 affordable rental and for-sale homes.
