The City and County of Denver is offering a free workshop offering guidance on obtaining community economic development funding, June 15, 1 to 3 p.m., at the District Two Police Station, community room, 3921 Holly St. The workshop is hosted by the Denver Office of Economic Development and the Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships.
The workshop will offer information on how to prepare winning proposals, provide answers from technical experts about OED’s programs and program requirements, and prepare attendees for the upcoming 2011 funding round of community economic development funds distributed by OED.
OED intends to issue a 2011 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) this summer to solicit proposals for housing development, housing services, neighborhood development, neighborhood services, and economic/business development and services.
The NOFA makes available public funds that could be used by non-profit and for-profit providers to facilitate the development of viable urban neighborhoods by providing quality affordable housing, an enhanced living environment and expanded economic opportunities for low- and moderate-income residents. Programs are funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Community Development Block Grant, Home Investment Partnerships and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS programs.
