Community housing and transit grants available

The Mile High Connection Grant Fund will offer small grants for effective, inclusive approaches to building healthy and prosperous transit-oriented communities and ensuring equity and opportunity for low-income communities, communities of color and other under-resourced communities in the Denver Metro Region. Specifically, we seek to fund efforts that will contribute to Mile High Connects’ 2017 Work Plan.

There is a second funding opportunity for this year made available by HUD Section 4 Capacity Building Funds, which is a federal program. Grant awards under this opportunity will be up to $50,000. It will support organizations that are CHDOs or CDCs (or organizations sufficiently similar in purpose, function, and scope), to build their capacity for a strong housing-delivery system and the creation and preservation of housing in high-opportunity communities.

MHC will be hosting grant application workshops April 20 and May 3. Attending a workshop is not required to apply for funding. RSVP to dgagne@denverfoundation.org if you are interested in attending.
