Grants to Colorado organizations to benefit youth in eligible regions. Funding is intended to address needs in the community by supporting educational, cultural, and recreational activities for middle and high school students. Activities should provide leadership and pro-social opportunities to local youth. All grants must serve City of Boulder resident middle school and high school youth only.
The City of Boulder plans to award annual grants on a competitive basis to youth-serving programs utilizing a positive youth development approach which target young people and, as much as possible, are designed with their partnership. The city invites proposals which provide city resident middle and high school age youth with cultural, educational, and recreational activities, meet a community need, provide pro-social opportunities, develop youth leadership and engage youth as partners in their planning and implementation with a concentration on underrepresented middle and high school age youth. Overhead and personnel expenses related to those activities are eligible for funding.
