City Seeks Resident Comments on Federal Grant Funding Distribution
The City of Greeley will host two public meetings for residents to learn about the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnership Program grant.
These grants come from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and provide federal funds to assist the city in areas of community development and affordable housing.
The city annually receives about $840,000 in CDBG funds, of which 70% must benefit low-to-moderate-income households and neighborhoods. Non-profit agencies serving a low-to-moderate-income population and city departments working in those neighborhoods can apply for 2023 funding by contacting the Greeley Urban Renewal Authority (GURA) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Previously, Greeley CDBG funds supported non-profits such as the Greeley Transitional House, Guadalupe Community Shelter, Senior Resource Services, and A Woman’s Place. Funds also supported city efforts to provide ramps, sidewalks, curbs, and gutters in low to moderate-income neighborhoods and affordable housing efforts.
The city’s GURA staff will present their plan for 2023 fund distribution to city council in fall 2022. Prior to that presentation, staff invite residents to participate in the approval of funding applications and offer comments.
To learn about current priorities to utilize the grants, historic use of the grants, and general information, residents are invited to attend either of two public meetings:
- June 16, 2022 – City Center North, 1100 10th Street, Room 1107, Greeley – 12:00-1:00 p.m.
- July 7, 2022 – Greeley Recreation Center, 651 10th Avenue, Room 102, Greeley – 4:00-5:00 p.m.
Additional information about the federal grants is available on the Greeley Urban Renewal Authority website or by calling GURA at 970-350-9380.
