Purpose/Background

Boulder County is committed to promoting local initiatives to remove and sequester carbon dioxide and to bolster landscape resilience and restoration in the face of climate change. Towards this commitment, the Office of Sustainability, Climate Action & Resilience is launching a ‘Climate Innovation’ fund to support local projects focused on carbon dioxide removal (CDR), and landscape resilience and restoration.

Boulder County is leveraging a two-step process for project review to streamline the application process for both applicants and for reviewers:

Prepare and submit a short-form proposal through the Request for Qualifications (RFQ). This does not need to have all of the particulars fleshed out, but should demonstrate project potential.

Projects that meet Boulder County’s quality criteria will be invited to submit a long-form proposal through the Request for Proposals (RFP).

While not all project proposals will be invited to submit a long-form proposal (RFP), we have included the requirements for both in this document in order to give applicants a clearer understanding of what Boulder County is prioritizing, and what materials should be compiled.

Through this process, Boulder County anticipates making between one and three awards at a total of no more than $450,000 across all projects.

This document contains detailed guidance on RFQ and RFP content and formatting requirements in Section 4 (Appendix) as well as contextual guidance on eligibility, quality criteria, motivation, and background for this program. Please see the table of contents above for directions to individual sections.
