The City of Greeley will host two public meetings for residents to provide feedback on the distribution of the Community Development Block grant and the HOME Investment Partnership program.
According to a city press release, the US Department of Housing and Urban Development made these federal funds available to assist the city in areas of community development and affordable housing.
Each year, the city receives about $840,000 in grants, and 70% of the funding must go to low- to middle-income households and neighborhoods, the release said.
To learn more about grant use priorities, grant history, and other information, community members are invited to attend two public sessions:
- June 16 from 12-1 p.m. at City Center North, 1100 10th St., Room 1107
- July 7 from 4 to 5 p.m. at the Greeley Recreation Center, 651 10th Ave., Room 102.
In the past, Greeley funds have benefited charitable organizations such as the Greeley Transitional House, the Guadalupe Community Shelter, Senior Resource Services and A Woman’s Place. The funds also supported the city through affordable housing efforts and efforts to provide ramps, sidewalks, curbs and gutters in low- to middle-income neighborhoods.
Greeley Urban Renewal Authority staff are inviting residents to comment and approve funding applications at meetings before presenting their 2023 fund allocation plan to City Council this fall.
Non-profit organizations and city offices serving low- to middle-income populations can apply for 2023 funding by contacting the Greeley Urban Renewal Authority at firstname.lastname@example.org.
