Human Service Agency Funding Program

2015 Human Service Agency Funding Information

Background:

The City of Longmont allocates approximately $1 million to community agencies, which provide services that address targeted human service needs in the Longmont community. Contracts are awarded annually through a competitive application process that is collaboratively administered by the cities of Longmont and Boulder, Boulder County governments, and Foothills United Way.

Eligibility:

The city will consider applications from private or public, not-for-profit or for-profit, non-governmental or governmental agencies that serve Longmont residents. All agencies must be legally incorporated entities in good standing.

Agencies must primarily serve low and moderate-income Longmont residents. All agencies must be able to document that their services benefit a significant number of Longmont residents; agencies that operate on a countywide or regional basis must also demonstrate how they successfully involve the Longmont community in planning and program development to most effectively address the needs of Longmont residents.

City of Longmont funding is intended to support direct service non-sectarian programs. City human service funding does not provide start-up money to establish a new human service agency or program, or for major capital purchases or facility improvements.

Proposed programs must fall under one of four impact areas:

For agencies seeking funding for childcare programs, the city offers two different options:

1) human service agency funding through the e-CImpact application process (where the City directly contracts with the provider)

2) the Childcare Certificate Gap Funding Program, where eligible families choose their own providers and these providers are reimbursed for the “gap” between market and State reimbursement rates (managed through City of Boulder Health and Human Services).

Childcare programs will be eligible to receive childcare funding from only one of these sources. Please contact Karen Roney, Community Services Director at 303-651-8633, or karen.roney@ci.longmont.co.us with any questions about childcare funding options.

Application Process:

All applicants must submit applications online using the city’s grant management system, e-CImpact, which is a collaborative application shared with the City of Boulder, Boulder County, and Foothills United Way. Using this application, agencies may apply to more than one funder and/or more than one impact area per funder, but individual programs can only apply for one impact area per funder. All agencies must complete mandatory application training. For more information regarding the mandatory trainings or the e-Cimpact system, please contact any of the staff below:

Review and Funding Process:
