Boulder County (Colorado) Commissioners gave final approval to a $7.25 million federal funding application for several housing assistance programs to help people impacted by last year’s devastating floods, according to timescall.com. Part of an overall $62.8 million Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery award the U. S. Department of Housing has made to help Colorado communities, $4 million of the grant will help people in modular homes relocate to a site outside the floodplain, as well as repair damaged single-family homes.
Boulder County’s program for repairing and/or removing flood-damaged housing must give priority to people directly impacted by the flood living in manufactured housing (MH), MHProNews has learned. The application also includes $250,000 for removal of manufactured homes damaged beyond repair in the flooding. The grant would provide countywide housing assistance services and projects outside the city of Longmont, CO which is applying for assistance on its own. ##
