CDBG-DR Grants to Fund Watershed Restoration Coalitions:

Talking to DOLA (Colorado Dept. of Local Affairs) people August 5: Politically, it is a good idea to have people show up at the Public Hearings to show support for the proposed Watershed Program in the Revised Action Plan, but it is not necessary for everyone to take the microphone to make a comment – the comments submitted electronically will carry just as much weight.

During the month of August, submit comments with any concerns you have about how the Watershed Program will be implemented

via the DOLA website
or email DOLA:

The Watershed Program is almost a sure thing, with money for a Coalition Coordinator distributed no later than January, but could be as early as November. The amount of money allocated to the Program is not a sure thing, and we are competing against the programs for housing, infrastructure, economic relief, etc.
