2017 MHC Grant Fund

by | Apr 10, 2017

We are excited to release our 2017 grant guidelines. The MHC Grant Fund will offer small grants for effective, inclusive approaches to building healthy and prosperous transit-oriented communities and ensuring equity and opportunity for low-income communities, communities of color and other under-resourced communities in the Denver Metro Region. Specifically, we seek to fund efforts that will contribute to Mile High Connects’ 2017 Work Plan.

This second funding opportunity is made available by HUD Section 4 Capacity Building Funds which is a federal program. Grant awards under this opportunity will be up to $50,000. It will support organizations that are CHDOs or CDCs (or organizations sufficiently similar in purpose, function, and scope), to build their capacity for a strong housing-delivery system and the creation and preservation of housing in high-opportunity communities.

Please visit www.milehighconnects.org/funding for more details on these funding opportunities.

We will be hosting two grant application workshops. Attendance is not required for applying for funding. The workshops will offer additional information about applying and specifics about the grant guidelines. RSVP to Davian Gagne, Grants & Operations Manager at [email protected].
