The City of Fort Collins is conducting a survey to determine how to invest federal funds in the community. The 2020–2024 Consolidated Plan decides how the City allocates CDBG and HOME funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These funds can be used for affordable housing, homeless and supportive services, and economic and community development. Over the next several years, HUD is expected to invest nearly $9 million dollars into Fort Collins through the CDBG and HOME programs.
“Over the last 5 years these funds have helped develop and preserve over 400 affordable housing units and helped provide services, such as mental health care and day programs for adults with disabilities, to over 2500 people in Fort Collins,” said City Grant Program Administrator, Dianne Tjalkens. “Community member input is essential in the process of determining which community needs should be addressed with CDBG and HOME funds over the next five years.”
The survey will run through mid-December and can be found here:
