The Columbia Housing and Development Commission has about $1 million to recommend for housing projects next year.

On Wednesday, nine members held an hour-long discussion at City Hall to decide what recommendations they wanted to send to the City Council for the 2025 budget. 

Each organization that requested funding was given a score. The commission received $2,084,493 worth of total requests.

Some of the biggest recommendations of note were:

  • Columbia’s Home Rehabilitation Program: $100,000
  • Services For an Independent Living getting $92,000 
  • Love Columbia: $60,000
  • Job Point: $75,000
  • CMCA Women’s Business Center: $50,000 

The committee is expected to present the recommendations to the City Council in August.
