Limited Flood Recovery Grant Funds Still Available for Boulder County Residents

Application period for remaining funds ends March 31,

Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County is reaching out to residents who may
have been impacted by the 2013 Flood to let them know there is limited time to
apply to Boulder County for the remaining federal Community Development Block
Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds from the U.S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development (HUD). The application period for the funds will close
March 31, 2016. Due to limited remaining funding, it is likely that only
highly-vulnerable households, particularly those with low- to moderate-incomes,
will be served.

The March 31 application deadline applies to homes
that need home repairs and households in need of rental assistance as a result
of the 2013 Flood. Households seeking assistance for home access repairs (e.g.,
private bridges, roads, and driveway repairs) will see a separate application
deadline later this year.

“With limited time and funding remaining, we are
reaching back out to the community to ensure this money gets to those who need
it most,” said Boulder County Commissioner Deb Gardner. “While the county has
come a long way since September 2013, we know there are still people who need help
getting back on their feet.”

Remaining funding will be directed to the county’s
most vulnerable households, based upon guidelines set by the federal government
and by the county. Specifically, priority will be given to households with
annual gross income below 80% Area Median Income (AMI) (see chart below) and
those in households with an elderly person, disabled individual, child(ren)
under 5 years old, or a veteran.

Households that do NOT fall into one or more of the
above categories will likely NOT receive funding. Additionally, federal
regulations require the county to award CDBG-DR funds to households in which all
members of the household are documented or otherwise lawfully present in the
United States.
