Choice Neighborhoods Implentation Grant Award
We are very happy to say that on Monday June 30, 2014 it was announced that Larimer is the recipient of one of four $30 million Choice Neighborhoods Implementation grants from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The announcement was made at the Kingsley Association with Larimer Consensus Group members, local politicians and other partners in attendance to receive the good news. The grant will help construct housing that helps advance the Larimer Vision Plan, the neighborhood’s plan for a green sustainable future. Read more about the Larimer Vision Plan here.
