Established in 1953, Thornton started with three homes that were built with families in mind. Today, Thornton is still focused on providing quality housing and healthy, vibrant neighborhoods for those who desire to live in our community. When neighborhoods are healthy and vibrant residents prosper, the local economy grows, and there is a sense of community and shared pride.  

Contractor Seminar: Learn How to Become Qualified to Work on Federally Funded Projects

The city of Thornton and other federally funded communities are seeking contractors for home rehabilitation programs to assist low- to moderate-income homeowners with home repairs to address health, safety, accessibility, and energy efficiency improvements. The repairs offered are free to qualified homeowners and paid through Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) federal funding.

Contractors working with CDBG-funded programs must meet federal requirements. Are you interested, but want to learn more? Contact Mayra Ramirez at 720-977-5818 or Mayra.Ramirez@ThorntonCO.gov.

Directory of Federally Qualified Contractors Partner Meeting

The CodeCAP program hosted a partner meeting, in collaboration with Colorado APEX Accelerator, discussing the creation of a regional directory of federally qualified contractors to be shared among Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)-funded programs. Representatives from home repair programs, non-profits, and business development organizations were in attendance. During the meeting, Colorado APEX Accelerator presented their end-to-end business support services and a summary of the process for businesses to meet federal requirements. Lastly, attendees were presented with information for a contractor seminar where businesses and partners can learn the process of becoming federally qualified. The seminar will be hosted by CodeCAP and facilitated by Colorado APEX Accelerator. Partners are encouraged to invite contractors and collaborators to the seminar.
