Human Relations Commission Offering Grants for Immigrant Heritage Month Events
The City of Boulder Human Relations Commission (HRC) invites nonprofit groups to submit proposals through April 12, 2021, to qualify for a maximum of $1,500, to host Immigrant Heritage Month (IHM) events this June.
This grant supports events that honor the experience and contributions of immigrants who have shaped the city for generations. Funds also support events that facilitate the successful integration of immigrants into the civic, economic and cultural life of the Boulder community, including building support and cultural understanding of the established community. The Office of Arts and Culture is offering enhancement sponsorships of up to $2,000 available per event for programs that include arts components.
To qualify, the event must be:
- A community-initiated online event,
- Hosted by a local nonprofit agency or group,
- Free and open to the public,
- Held within the Boulder city limits,
- Follow specific financial requirements outlined in RFP,
- Comply with all federal, state and local laws, and
- Meet all eligibility requirements in the Request for Proposals
The HRC recognizes the importance of educating the community on shared immigrant histories, diverse cultures and the role these play in shaping and enriching the life of the city with their contributions, unique customs and traditions of their ancestral homelands. IHM events help Boulder to grow as a safe and inclusive community.
