Addressing the Community's Needs

Several years ago the citizens of Pueblo identified the following community development needs to make Pueblo’s living environment healthy and productive:
  • Economic development
  • Education
  • Human services delivery systems
  • Infrastructure
  • Neighborhoods
  • Planning
To meet these needs we leverage government and private funds to invest in financially sound, well designed projects that will benefit neighborhoods for many years to come. Our work is done in partnership with developers, lenders, investors, and nonprofit organizations that use our financing to serve our low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.

City of Pueblo Honored for Homeless Veterans Housing Project
The City of Pueblo Housing and Citizen Services Department is being recognized for a project it developed that helps an often ignored segment of our population.

Housing Colorado NOW! has presented an “Eagle Award” to the city’s Housing and Citizen Services Department for the homeless veterans housing project it completed in January of 2013, on East 4th Street.
Eagle Award
The original properties had been abandoned and boarded up. They were also proving problematic for the neighborhood as they were attracting criminal activity. Once the properties were purchased work began on turning the once blighted buildings into housing.
