A $200,000 EPA grant provided funds for the extensive asbestos abatement of the site.

HUD Housing Project - $1 Million Grant
    In 2010 Kit Carson received a HUD Hope VI Main Street Grant for $1 Million. Kit Carson Rural Developemnet wrote and will be managing all aspect of this grant. With grand funds KCRD purchased five home sites in Kit Carson. Through a generous donation of in-kind labor those sites have been cleared and readied for construction. The CU Denver Design & Build program donated their time and drew up plans for the five homes. Models of these plans are located at the Kit Carson State Bank. Construction is slated to begin in the fall of 2011. One of the five homes will be donated to the Kit Carson School for teacher housing. The remaining four homes will all be 3 bedroom 2 bath detached single family homes. Initial occupants must fall under HUD's requirements for low income. These levels can be viewed at their website - under Cheyenne County, Colorado.
