Arapahoe County, through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), will receive $2,691,031 in HOME Investment Partnerships Program—American Rescue Plan (HOME-ARP) funds to help reduce homelessness and increase housing stability.
A draft of the County’s HOME-ARP Plan is available for review until Sunday, March 19, 2023.
The draft HOME-ARP plan establishes funding priorities and allocations for the $2,691,031 entitlement allocation, and will be submitted to HUD for approval, as part of a substantial amendment to the 2021 Annual Action Plan. The plan was developed based on the consultation and public participation process, the needs assessment and gap analysis, and includes proposed allocations for projects within the following categories: rental housing, tenant-based rental assistance, supportive services, acquisition and/or development of non-congregate shelter, non-profit operating assistance or capacity building, and HOME-ARP administration and planning.
The draft HOME-ARP plan is also available by request made to Jeremy Fink at email@example.com or 303-738-8062 or by TDD 303-738-8033, or in person at Arapahoe County Community Development offices located at 1690 W. Littleton Blvd., Suite 300, Littleton, CO 80120.
