FORT COLLINS and GREELEY — The Northern Colorado Continuum for Care has received $1.45 million in federal money to help end homelessness in Weld and Larimer counties.
The Continuum for Care organization is managed jointly by Homeward Alliance of Larimer County and United way of Weld County.
“In our first time applying to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as a Continuum of Care, the NoCO CoC received funding renewals for a number of permanent supportive housing, voucher and rental assistance projects,” Kelli Pryor, the Northern Colorado Continuum of Care director, said in a written statement. “We were also granted competitive funding for Homeward Alliance’s regional homelessness data and information system and a new effort that will assist housing domestic violence survivors, as offered jointly by United Way and domestic violence service providers in the two counties.”
NoCo Continuum of Care was founded in January 2020 just before the beginning of the pandemic. In its first year, the organization received $1.18 million from HUD and $2.3 million from the state of Colorado. The money was used to keep those experiencing homelessness safe from coronavirus impacts and to help them regain housing.
