The City and County of Denver has responded to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis by implementing a variety of strategies for individuals experiencing homelessness. This has also expanded opportunities for rehousing, housing stability, and housing opportunity.

Learn more about the Department of Housing Stability’s COVID-19 efforts from Chief Housing Officer Britta Fisher, along with HOST staff and partners from Denver’s Department of Public Health & Environment, presenting an update on COVID-19 operations to City Council’s Safety, Housing, Education, and Homelessness Committee.

HOST 2021 Budget Appendices

The HOST 2021 budget numbers are established based on actual appropriations for some sources like the City’s General Fund, projected amounts based upon historical levels for sources like federal grants, and current rates of spending for sources that can carry forward from one year to the next

HOST has recently developed a one-year draft Action Plan to guide the department’s investments, policies and strategies in 2021. The plan will act as a bridge to its longer, five-year plan, which will be available for public review in late 2021. The budget laid out in the Action Plan is different from the HOST budget in the City Budget Book.

  • Some projects like affordable housing developments take time—funds may be designated for a project but not fully spent in the same year 
  • Special Revenue funds in the city budget book indicate the amount expected to be expended in a given year; the HOST budget includes the unencumbered balance available to spend.
