FCSG successfully lobbied for the Income Qualified Assistance Program (IQAP) – provides substantial utility bill relief to customers of Fort Collins Utilities earning up to 165% of the Federal Poverty level. IQAP provides billing relief through a combination of energy and water efficiency assistance and utility rate reductions. This went into effect in October 2018.
The Fort Collins Homeless Coalition worked tirelessly to gut the proposed Sit-Lie ban ordinance in March 2017. They pressured the city to removing any of the references to sitting or lying on sidewalks or benches.
FCHC is working extensively on the statewide Right to Rest Act, surveying people who are currently homeless to gather data, working on bill language, messaging, lobbying. Members of the Fort Collins Homeless Coalition travel to Denver to testify in favor of the bill.
Fuerza Latina is educating immigrants and allies with know your rights trainings, legal clinics with free consultation, and emergency preparedness packets. These packets are used by families in the case that a member gets picked up by immigration.
