Denver seeks applicants for project funding


The Denver Economic Development and Opportunity office announced last month it is accepting applications for funding for neighborhood services projects.

Projects that are awarded funds must be ready to implement services in the first quarter of 2020. The office is looking to fund projects with several focuses, according to a news release from Denver Economic Development and Opportunity.

Project categories are:

• Nonprofit organizing for community capacity building to impact neighborhood revitalization;

• Economic development: business assistance for financial empowerment;

• Youth and adult services focused on increasing self-sufficiency, including literacy, independent living skills and job training;

• Economic development: technical assistance for cooperative business models; and

• Outreach efforts to promote available forms of assistance for economic development, employment, housing services and technical assistance.

The city is giving priority consideration to applicants with projects in neighborhoods such as East Colfax, Elyria Swansea, Globeville and other northeast Denver locations. The projects will be funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Community Development Block Grant.

Applications are due Aug. 16 at 4 p.m. For more information, go to
