Grant Description
Grants of up to $5,000 to Colorado community groups for grassroots-led projects to improve neighborhoods in eligible regions. Priority will be given to projects that target neighborhoods with below-average income and to BIPOC communities. Eligible applicants are residents of the Metro Denver area.

The Denver Foundation is pleased to invite qualified community groups to apply for funding from the Strengthening Neighborhoods program. The Strengthening Neighborhoods program provides small grants to support grassroots community development and organizing. Projects must make use of the strengths and assets that already exist in the community, such as residents’ skills or neighborhood institutions (like businesses, schools, churches, or parks). 

All proposed projects must be planned and led by three or more unrelated residents of the neighborhood. The Foundation prioritizes projects and campaigns in communities where people earn less than the area median income and in communities of color.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
- A community group does not need to be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization to apply.
- Your community group must be led by at least three (3) unrelated people
- Your organizations must be located in and do work in Metro Denver.
