Grants of up to $1,500 and grants of up to $3,500 to Colorado nonprofit agencies, organizations, and groups in eligible locations for community events that honor and celebrate the experiences, contributions, and diverse cultures of immigrants. Proposals that include an arts component are eligible for supplemental funding. Funds are also intended to support events that facilitate the successful integration of immigrants into the civic, economic, and cultural life of the Boulder community.

Immigrants have enriched Boulder beyond measure, bringing many contributions to the community along with the unique customs and traditions of their ancestral homelands. The Boulder Human Relations Commission (HRC) recognizes the importance of educating the city’s population on shared immigrant histories, diverse cultures and the role these play in shaping and enriching the life of the city.
Funds may be used only for non-personnel related expenses, such as food, postage, marketing and office supplies.
