City Seeks Public Input on Draft Federal Action Plan for Housing and Community Development Programs

Public meetings to also highlight proposed expansion plans for Denver’s Affordable Housing Fund

 

DENVER, CO ­— Thursday, April 26, 2018 — The Denver Office of Economic Development is seeking public input and comment to its proposed 2018 federal Action Plan for local housing, economic development, public service, and neighborhood facilities programs that utilize federal funds. Public meetings will be held on Thursday, May 10 from 4:30-6 p.m. in the Wellington Webb Building, 201 W. Colfax, Rooms 4.F.6-4.G.2; and on Wednesday, June 6 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Montbello Recreation Center, 15555 E. 53rd Ave., Community Room.

 

The meetings will also provide an overview of Denver’s proposed framework that partners with the Denver Housing Authority to double the Affordable Housing Fund annually – from $15 million to $30 million – and generate a new funding surge of an estimated $105 million for affordable housing over the next five years.

 

The draft action plan document, which will be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), will be available for a 30-day public comment period from May 15 through June 15, 2018 at denvergov.org/oed.

 

The 2018 Action Plan encompasses the following federal programs: Community Development Block Grant Program, HOME Investment Partnership Program, Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS Program, and Emergency Shelter Grant programs. The plan includes information about the overall goals and objectives for the year with a description of the available resources and proposed actions to address identified needs. All proposed activities and projects are intended to principally benefit citizens of Denver who have extremely low- and moderate-incomes, and populations that have special needs such as elderly, disabled, homeless individuals and families, as well as individuals with HIV/AIDS.

 

Sign language interpretation and Spanish translation can be provided at the public meetings with five business days’ notice. For more information, contact Rachel King at 720-913-1669. Anyone unable to attend a public meeting may send comments to rachel.king@denvergov.org.

 

Final copies of the plan will be available upon HUD approval.

 

The Denver Office of Economic Development (OED) 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.
