Nonprofit Emergency Relief Fund
The City and County of Denver has created a new grant opportunity to support nonprofits in Denver to continue critical programs and services for residents across a spectrum of needs. It is one of Denver’s economic initiatives to support the nonprofit community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Colorado registered nonprofit organizations, including those with a nonprofit fiscal partner who are engaged in activities that are legal under Colorado and federal law.
- Your organization must be in good standing with local, state, and federal taxing and licensing authorities.
- This relief program is targeting nonprofit organizations experiencing financial hardships due to the COVID pandemic (increased demand, decreased income, new services).
- The organization need not be housed in Denver but must attest that the funds will be used to support residents of Denver.

- Nonprofits who are operating within priority neighborhoods including Elyria- Swansea, Globeville, NE Parkhill, East Colfax, Montbello, Sun Valley, Valverde, Villa Park, West Colfax, Westwood.
- Organizations not located in these neighborhoods but serving these resident will also be prioritized if supporting documentation is provided.
- Nonprofits that provide service to vulnerable populations including under-resourced or historically marginalized groups such as communities of color, older adults, people experiencing poverty or homelessness, immigrants and refugees, people living with disabilities, LGBTQ+, veterans, and the people you serve are represented on your board and/or staff.
- Nonprofits whose pursuit of equity is expansive where language justice, underrepresented groups, and social/economic equity is meaningfully represented.
