Well, the bult of the country seems to have done real well by HUD. We here in 
Colorado Springs just found how we fared with the Continuum of Care HUD 
grants. In a word; we got hosed. Two very worthy programs and one sort of 
worthy one got major reductions, three new applicants got nothing. No real 
explanation of why, other than "population and need ratios". Maybe they 
figured if we had the private bucks to rearrange our existing emergency 
services into a $6 million mega-shelter, we didn't really need the HUD funds. 
In reality, some of these services will probably fold with the full HUD
