2019 HSF Updates

The 2017 – 2022 City of Boulder Human Services Strategy reflects a two-year effort to identify Boulder’s most important human services issues, needs and trends. The Strategy aligns investments with priorities and identifies the six key human services goals and strategies that will guide city investments over the next five years: A Good Start; Aging Well; Economic Mobility and Resilience; Health and Well-being; Homelessness; and Inclusive and Welcoming Community. Specific changes to community funding are described in the Community Funding Overview 


The HSF funds nonprofit agencies and organizations, educational or governmental entities – public or private that propose to serve City of Boulder residents. The HSF supports a wide variety of organizations, including minority-focused organizations and grassroots agencies. For more information about eligibility criteria and priorities, please contact Matt Sundeen (contact information in the tool bar to the right), or Tony Barkey at [email protected]
