New this summer, Boulder County is recruiting for an inaugural 9-member Emergency Services Grant Program Advisory Committee. The committee will provide recommendations to Boulder County regarding the grant program portion of the Emergency Services Sales and Use Tax which was approved by voters in 2022 as "County Issue 1B" (with the first round of funding ~$3 million available this fall).

Individuals with an interest in or experience with trail safety, emergency services and rescue response activities are invited to apply for a seat on the new committee.

Meetings will be held virtually to accomodate schedules and distance between communities. The committee will be formed in early September and make recommendations on the first set of grants by the end of December 2023.
