Colorado Springs, Colo. – The City of Colorado Springs Community Development Division is pleased to offer “Renter Rights 101,” two informational sessions this fall for renters in collaboration with Colorado Legal Services. A staff attorney from Colorado Legal Services will present the session content. Pikes Peak Library District and Community Development staff will also present local resources and materials available to all residents on housing issues.

In addition to help from the hosting congregations and presenter organizations, these sessions are also made possible by Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds. The primary purpose of CDBG funds is to serve low- and moderate-income residents who reside within the city limits of Colorado Springs. The Community Development Division also uses its CDBG funds to provide Fair Housing educational opportunities to the community, as part of its efforts to affirmatively further fair housing.

Anyone requiring an auxiliary aid or interpreter service to participate should make the request as soon as possible, but no later than 48 hours before the event. For more information, contact Catherine Duarte at Catherine.Duarte@coloradosprings.gov or 719-385-6876
