The Fort Collins City Council on June 6 awarded $4 million in federal and City dollars to affordable housing providers and nonprofit agencies that provide childcare services, programs to support people with disabilities, people experiencing homelessness, food programs, self-sufficiency programs and more.
Funds originate from two federal programs including the Community Development Block Grant program, and HOME Investment Partnership program and through the City’s General Fund and Keep Fort Collins Great.
The City received 45 housing, public facility and public service applications totaling $4.5 million. A majority of the $4 million awarded – 74 percent – went to housing and public facility projects. The full list is available with the June 6 Council packet available on the City Clerk’s website.
The City’s Social Sustainability Department assists with financial support for housing and human services and serves as a convener and collaborator as part of its Strategic Plan.
