During the week of October 13, 2009, Housing Colorado held its annual "Housing Colorado Now!" Conference in Breckenridge, Colorado. This year the theme for the conference was "Pathways to Progress". The National and State Policy Luncheon featured HUD's Deputy Secretary Ron Sims, who was joined by Terry Rosapep, Regional Administrator for the U. S. Department of Transportation's Region VIII Office, Federal Transit Administration, and Carol Rushin, Acting Regional Administrator for Region VIII, Environmental Protection Agency. The Deputy Secretary discussed how HUD would be collaborating with these, as well as other federal agencies to increase the development of sustainable communities. Deputy Secretary Sims also announced 22 grants totaling $618,000 to 16 HUD-approved Colorado housing counseling organizations. Over 500 people attended the conference, including a number of the Denver HUD office staff who presented information on HERA, ARRA, and FHA program funding.
