The COVID-19 pandemic has had far-reaching health, economic, and social impacts across Colorado and beyond. Coloradans who experience barriers to critical services and opportunities due to race and socioeconomic status are being especially hard hit and disproportionately affected. Community-based organizations serving these groups are experiencing immense strain and have acute needs for immediate, flexible funding.
Through the Colorado COVID-19 Relief Fund, eligible community-based organizations across Colorado may apply for a general operating grant of up to $25,000. Additionally, three or more organizations can apply together as a collaborative for up to $100,000. Applications – for both individual or collaborative grants – should align with criteria for the Impact priority area. Eligibility requirements and more information can be found here.
The Relief Fund will open for applications Thursday, Nov. 12, and the deadline for 7th round applications will be Thursday, Dec. 3.
