Mini Grants for Providers of Housing-Related Legal Services
The City of Fort Collins Neighborhood Services in partnership with Social Sustainability is awarding mini grants to legal service providers and nonprofit organizations to provide historically underserved communities in Fort Collins with housing-related legal defense and advice. This funding is from the federal CARES Act to address the impact of COVID-19, so all services provided are required to meet CARES Act funding criteria.
What types of services qualify for this mini-grant?
- Direct representation of defendants in housing-related legal actions, such as eviction
- Providing legal advice for Fort Collins residents on housing-related legal matters
- “Know Your Rights” educational workshops on housing-related topics for residents, property managers, and property owners
- Legal clinic day with short appointments for Fort Collins residents to meet with attorneys or other legal staff on housing-related legal matters
- Bi-lingual staffing for interpretation or translation for housing-related legal information
The City of Fort Collins will conduct outreach about the availability of grant-funded services to historically underserved, low income, and senior citizens. Grant recipients will be responsible for scheduling appointments, conducting client intake, and matching attorneys with clients.

Considerations for project enhancement
If your project or event is associated with conservation or environmental sustainability efforts, there may be other City programs that could assist with funding or supplies for your neighborhood. We recommend exploring those possibilities and potentially combining resources. Multiple service areas offer incentives, rebates, classes, or supplies for such efforts. The Utilities rebate program as well as the City's Environmental Services department may assist you in beginning your search.
