The Department of Local Affairs’ funding programs are intended to help local communities and the state recover from the devastating physical and economic effects of natural disasters.
The programs help homeowners, businesses, local governments and communities rebuild after natural disasters. The programs aim to help Coloradans not only to rebuild, but also to produce healthier, safer and more resilient homes, businesses, and communities throughout the state.
