Nearly $10 Million For Metro Denver Homeless

We are very excited to announce that long-time CCJRC member, the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless was awarded more than $4 million from the federal government today. We'd like to take a moment to acknowledge all the excellent work that these groups have done over the years.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development today awarded agencies that serve the homeless in metro Denver more than $9.9 million.

The money is a crucial part of the budget for many groups that serve the homeless.

The Colorado Coalition for the Homeless was awarded more than $4 million for a variety of projects, including the 100-unit Renaissance Riverfront project along the South Platte River at Park Avenue West..
