In November 2020, the UWLC Board of Directors voted to allocate remaining Innovation Grant dollars to equity-focused funds for coordinated systems-level work promoting equity and inclusion across the County.
United Way of Larimer County (UWLC) will award $66,000 to three collaborative systems-building projects at $22,000 each that advance racial equity in Larimer County. 10% of the award ($2,000) must be spent on evaluation activities to identify areas of impact and lessons learned.
The program/project must incorporate capacity-building and strategic, shared learning across the collaborative. Funds are not intended for general operating support. Applications will be accepted 4/12 - 5/14 by 11:59 PM.
If you have any questions regarding this opportunity, please contact Lauren Leary, Director of Community Impact, at LLEary@uwaylc.org or 970.407.7064
Funding previously dedicated to NPE grants is being used to purchase mental health/employee assistance services for the early childhood workforce who has remained on the front lines caring for children during the pandemic. Remaining funds are also supporting diversity, equity and inclusion consulting and training for the nonprofit sector.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) allocated funding to Larimer County for Phase 38 for $128,625.00.
Any nonprofit, faith-based, or local government agency that provides food and shelter services may apply for funds. Current or former EFSP participation is not required for participation.
Duplication of service cannot occur during the spending period. Since Phases 37, CARES, and 38 are running concurrently, grant recipients will need to ensure they do not duplicate expenditures for clients in the rent/mortgage and utility categories. This means clients may receive assistance one time per phase in those categories, see samples below:
If a client owes rent for 2 months, can an agency pay one month's rent under Phase 37 or CARES and the other month under Phase 38?
ANSWER: Yes. This would not be considered a duplication of service because the payments were made from different phases for different months of rent.
If a client owes rent for 2 months, can an agency pay both under Phase 38?
ANSWER: No. If both months of rent were paid in the same phase, that would not be accepted as it is duplication for the same client and is not allowed under EFSP Guidelines.
