Untold Returns: Adventures in Impact Investing episode 3 travels to Northglenn, CO, once named, “the most perfectly planned community in North America,” by Life Magazine. A close suburb of Denver, Northglenn is feeling the impact of the region’s booming economy. As businesses and young professionals flock to the area, housing prices have gone up, pushing rentals out of the reach of families and forcing them to uproot in search of homes they can afford. But all is not lost. Impact investing strategies, including equity investments to preserve affordable housing, are making a difference.
In this episode, Bethany talks with Peter Lifari, Bryon Gongaware, Chris Herrmann and Joe Wishcamper about:
  • Affordable housing preservation as an impact investment strategy
  • The role of equity investments in preservation efforts
  • How affordable housing first gets created, primarily through Low Income Housing Tax Credits
