U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD)


A significant portion of funding to deliver the mission of Denver Economic Development & Opportunity (DEDO) is federal rather than local. Serving as the lead grant administrator for HUD funds, DEDO works closely with the city's Department of Housing Stability (HOST), who also uses HUD dollars to deliver their critical community investments. HUD funding opportunities are posted online with a limited time window; development projects are accepted in a rolling window.

Action Plans

As required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, DEDO prepares an annual action plan and receives public comment. Denver also prepares its Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER) for each year.  In addition, DEDO prepares a Five-Year Comprehensive Plan. Denver's current HUD Comprehensive Plan covers 2019-2023.
