Anecdotally, the Denver Basic Income Project has saved lives. According to new research on the program that provided no-strings-attached cash to 807 homeless adults in Denver, it also saved taxpayers significant money throughout its first-year pilot program.

Decreases in those categories added up to more than $589,00 ..read more

The City Council on Monday voted 8 to 2 to authorize a two-year contract with Housing Connector to power that work. A self-described “tech-for-good” nonprofit, Housing Connect ..read more

Colorado’s latest congressional campaign fundraising snapshot — the final one before the June 25 primary — showed new and intriguing dynamics emerging to stir things up in a high-profile presidential election year.
