The Department of Local Affairs Division of Housing is hosting a public hearing in the Founders Room at Mile High United Way to present our Substantial Amendment for Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program (HPRP) funding. We will take public testimony on the use of HPRP funding, which is designated for the purpose of assisting individuals and families who would otherwise be homeless. HPRP funds may be used to prevent homelessness by providing financial assistance and services to people who are at risk of losing their housing, or to quickly re-house those who are already homeless.

The public is invited to attend. If you cannot attend in person, you may also send your testimony to lynn.shine@state.co.us.

Beginning Tuesday, April 28th the Substantial Amendment will be posted on our web site at www.dola.colorado.gov/arra/arra.html
