DIVERSION PROGRAMS

 

Denver County Diversion Program

Diversion programs provide financial assistance in a one-time payment for a short-term episode or crisis not expected to go beyond four consecutive months. The programs are designed to assist low-income, working families in responding to unexpected circumstances rather than to meet ongoing or recurrent needs. A family may receive such benefits no more than twice in a lifetime.


Due to limitations of funding, the Denver county diversion program assistance may not exceed $1,000 and can be used for Section 8 deposits only.
 
If you need assistance with a Section 8 deposit you may contact Leanne Torres at 720-944-1417 to have an application mailed to you.
 
The Colorado state diversion program may provide other assistance.
Please call 720-944-3666 for more information.
