Deadline Date:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Colorado nonprofit organizations including government, faith-based, and educational institutions to address the needs of children and youth in eligible regions. Grant funds may be used for programs, projects, or to support general operations. Eligible applicants must provide homelessness intervention and/or prevention services within Boulder County for the benefit of Boulder County youth residents between ages 0-18 years old.

The intention of 15 Forever is to address the needs and concerns of Boulder County youth from a peer perspective. This year’s 15 Forever Youth Advisory Committee is now accepting grant proposals to address youth homelessness in Boulder County. Youth homelessness disproportionately affects LGBTQ Youth and contributes to food insecurity and education inequality.

The 15 Forever YouthBoard wants to fund organizations that provide either homelessness intervention and/or prevention services. The universe of eligible intervention and prevention services is diverse and broad. Eligible services may include, but are not limited to, medical, career development, financial literacy, or housing support. Funding can be used for a project, program, or general operating support.

Funding Period: July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2021

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

To be eligible for this funding, applicants must currently be recognized as a 501(c)(3) public charity in the United States, including governmental, educational, and religious institutions.

The organization applying must provide homelessness intervention and/or prevention services within Boulder County for the benefit of Boulder County youth residents between ages 0-18 years old.
