Denver housing and community development draft action plan to be presented at public meeting

Residents invited to comment on 2010 action plan

The Denver Office of Economic Development (OED) will present a draft of the 2010 Action Plan of the City’s Consolidated Plan during a public meeting, November 12, 2009, 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the Wellington E. Webb Municipal Office Building, 201 W. Colfax Ave., room 4.G.2.

The 2010 Action Plan is the third action plan of the City’s five-year Consolidated Plan (2008-2012). The plan is required for the City to receive housing and community development federal funding. The plan identifies proposed activities to be funded through the following federal programs:

  • Community Development Block Grant Program
  • HOME Investment Partnership Program
  • Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program
  • Emergency Shelter Grant programs
  • Neighborhood Stabilization Program I & II
  • Community Development Block Grant-Recovery

The Action Plan includes information about the overall goals and objectives for the upcoming year with a description of available resources and proposed actions to address identified needs. All proposed activities and projects are intended to principally benefit Denver residents who have extremely low, low and moderate incomes, as well as special needs populations including the elderly, homeless populations, individuals with disabilities and those with HIV/AIDS.

Denver’s Consolidated Plan has funded homeownership and rental assistance programs, construction of community centers, sidewalk and alley improvements, economic development programs and programs that assist special needs populations.

For additional information regarding the meeting, call 720-913-1999.

The Denver Office of Economic Development is dedicated to advancing economic prosperity for the City of Denver, its businesses, neighborhoods and residents. Working with a wide variety of community partners, OED operates to create a local environment that stimulates balanced growth through job creation, business assistance, housing options, neighborhood redevelopment and the development of a skilled workforce.
