Human Services Fund
The City of Boulder's Human Services Fund (HSF) provides approximately $2 million annually to community agencies providing services to Boulder residents in support of the Human Services Strategy. Awards are made through a competitive process based on alignment with City of Boulder priorities and goals.

Investing in the Community
The City of Boulder invests resources in improving community health and well-being for our residents. The HSF supports programs and services consistent with the core principles and goals identified in the Human Services Strategy, which will be published in the summer 2017. The Strategy includes updates to community goals and funding priorities. In funding programs, the city's mission is to be an investor and partner in the community rather than simply a funder of human services. Each funded program sets annual outcome goals and reports on them twice a year.
