Flood Recovery Grants
$1.969 Million in Flood Recovery Funding Awarded to Local Organizations

The Community Foundation has granted out $1.969 million in grants to nonprofit and governmental entities that are carrying out local flood recovery efforts. These grants, which were distributed between November 2013 and August 2014, were made possible by donors from across the country and the generous $750,000 match from Bohemian Foundation.  Please click here to read a January 2014 press release with more information. 

In early October 2013, the Community Foundation released guidelines for grant requests to assist in flood relief efforts in Larimer County and asked nonprofit and governmental entities to submit applications. The third and final funding cycle deadline was Dec. 17.


Funding recommendations were made by local committees in the impacted communities. Funding guidelines, while flexible to meet varying community needs, prioritized projects that planned to support either human needs or rebuilding communities. 


Below is a list of the grants made to organizations in support of recovery efforts in our region. Please contact us with any questions.
