Human Relations Fund Applications

Funding helps raise awareness of civil rights and human rights issues.

The Human Relations Commission (HRC) is committed to supporting community-initiated activities that raise awareness on civil rights and human rights issues and problems in Boulder; facilitate interaction, understanding, collaboration and civic participation among diverse communities; and enable members of Boulder’s communities to celebrate events significant to them while they provide learning opportunities to the general population.

Human Relations Fund Grants

Human Relations Fund (HRF) grants are limited to:

  • Nonprofit organizations;
  • Activities held within Boulder city limits; and
