Provision of Government Services

Assistance for the Family Resource Centers: OUR Center, Sister Carmen Community Center, and Emergency Family Assistance Association $750,000
Funding for the Family Resource Centers (FRCs) or the populations they serve will assist in meeting immediate community needs across Boulder County. FRCs provide direct basic needs assistance, including cash assistance to eligible clients to support items such as current and arrears utility bills, food assistance, car repairs/insurance, gap funding to clients who do not qualify for other government assistance, and/or bridge funding while waiting on additional community resources. During the pandemic, they also have been supporting access for clients to pandemic relief programs such as Emergency Rental Assistance and aid to impacted workers. The FRCs are an established system that most directly serves lower-income populations that also can include people experiencing homelessness or housing instability, BIPOC, and immigrant communities.

Digital Divide Project $557,395
The Community Services Digital Divide Project bridges the technology divide through several efforts to increase access to education, employment, and services: Support for nonprofits and internal programs with procuring, providing, and instructing vulnerable community members on technological devices and connectivity; part-time resource navigators to support the connection, instruction, and 1:1 support to connect individuals with technology; and devices and connectivity for individuals experiencing homelessness and inmates while in custody.
