Denver selects community partners for housing, neighborhood and business development projects

$8.3 million in federal funds to be awarded among 50 organizations

The Denver Office of Economic Development (OED) has issued award letters to 50 organizations slated to receive federal grant funding totaling $8.3 million in 2012. Funds will be made available through the City’s allocation of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funding to support housing, neighborhood and business development projects.

 

OED issued a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) in June 2011 for proposals to be funded by HUD’s Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnerships and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS programs. Applications were evaluated and scored by OED staff and community members. Community members were chosen based on their knowledge and experience in the program areas of housing development, economic/business development and neighborhood development.
