In a meeting on February 23, Marshall ROC is partnering with the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) to provide a virtual public education session on the Housing Recovery Program (HRP) for those impacted by the Marshall Fire and Straight-Line Winds event.
The session will provide an overview of the program, clarify eligibility, explain how to apply, and address the most frequently asked questions from the community. There will be time for Q&A following the overview.
The State of Colorado Housing Recovery Program
The State of Colorado Housing Recovery Program (HRP) is a statewide program for rebuilding and rehabilitation of homes impacted by an eligible state-declared or federally-declared disaster.
This program combines multiple funding sources into a single application for those who lost, or had significant damage to a primary residence in the Marshall Fire:
- The State Disaster Resilience Rebuilding (DRR) fund,
- The Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG); and
- The Federal Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Please note that this specific funding source is available for Marshall Fire and Straight-Line Winds recovery only
These programs are primarily geared towards households that need additional funding for rebuilding whose income is at or below 150% of the area median income (AMI). Traditional loans are available for those with incomes above 150% of the AMI.
Applications are now open for impacted households to apply. Applicants should submit the full form application, to determine all eligible funding opportunities from the program. For inquiries regarding the application process, eligibility, or individuals seeking information about the State’s Housing Recovery Program, you can connect with a representative by calling or texting 303-532-2785 Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. MST, or emailing: email@example.com.
The State of Colorado Department of Local Affairs has partnered with Impact Development Fund as program administrator and Community Economic Defense Project as the application intake partner to support communities and homeowners in rebuilding residences impacted by natural disasters throughout Colorado.
Impact Development Fund
Impact Development Fund (IDF) is a nonprofit Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), and is committed to making an impact by developing and preserving affordable housing and nonprofit facilities. Certified by the United States Treasury, and as an approved Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) institution, Impact Development Fund works with social impact investors, local municipalities, housing and financing authorities across Colorado, nonprofit organizations, partner CDFIs, and traditional banks to provide opportunities for positive change by making investments in housing and economic development in Colorado’s communities.
Community Economic Defense Project
The Community Economic Defense Project (CEDP) encompasses a fully-integrated response to economic hardship and innovative service delivery models. This work has expanded far beyond eviction defense as they advocate for rights for mobile home residents, directly prevent homelessness through diversion efforts, offer foreclosure and Homeowner Association (HOA) defense services, take on consumer and medical debt, and defend and provide aid to victims of non-consensual towing.
For those impacted by the Marshall Fire and Straight-Line Winds event, the Department of Local Affairs will virtually offer a public information session on the Housing Recovery Program on Thursday, February 23rd.
