Note: The City of Boulder Open Data Catalog will be migrating to a new platform in fall 2020. A link to the new dataset location is included here under 'Data and Resources'. Please bookmark as the future site of Boulder Open Data.

The function of the Human Relations Commission (HRC) is to foster mutual respect and understanding and to promote an atmosphere conducive to amicable relations among all members of the Boulder community. The HRC consists of five members appointed by City Council, each to a five-year term.

The HRC provides grants for activities which raise awareness on emerging civil rights issues, facilitate interaction, collaboration and understanding between diverse communities and enable community members to celebrate and share culturally diverse events. All activities are run by local non-profits, are free and open to the public and take place within Boulder city limits. The HRC accepts proposals for funding throughout the year, and reviews and awards proposals monthly. While all proposals are funded through the Human Relations Fund, there are designated fund rounds for celebration-specific events such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Celebration of Immigrant Heritage and Indigenous People’s Day.

The data contained herein summarizes each request for funding, includes key dates in the award process and summary information about the event organizer and topic. Historical funding request is more limited, as it does not contain information on key dates. In addition, prior to 2017, the Human Relations Fund (HRF) was comprised of two different funds, the Community Events Fund (CEF) and the Community Impact Fund (CIF). Please refer to the data dictionary for a detailed explanation of each data element.

The HRC typically holds its business meetings on the third Monday of each month. For more information on the HRC please visit:
