EP Grants for Nonprofits
Nonprofit Relief Fund
About this Fund:
EPNRC has established a nimble fund to be used to respond to any operational need that helps to support continued or emerging essential needs. The goal for this fund is $150k; Village Thrift provided a starting base of $50k. Local donors are contributing. Additional funds could come through sale of products, fundraising events online, etc.
Purpose of this Fund:
To support any operational need that contributes to the provision of an essential service or basic need in our community.
Who can apply:
* Any local nonprofit in or in service to the Estes Park community.
* Any local business that is in partnership with a local nonprofit, entity, club, or group to provide an essential or basic need in the community.
* These funds might be used to support community programs that provide essential services to employees of local businesses.
* A club, group, or entity that endeavors to provide an essential service or basic need in the community. (Think, HOAs want to form a meal delivery service for their neighbors in need and want gas money, bags, or safe contact materials.)

Town of EP Community Relief Fund (most funds have been requested)
In a very short period of time the COVID-19 coronavirus has had a major impact on the residents and businesses in the Estes Valley, and the end is not yet in sight. After learning about some of the challenges faced by members of our community, the Town of Estes Park Board of Trustees appropriated $250,000 for community relief efforts focused on needs related to food insecurity, housing, and support for local businesses and organizations. The goal is to disperse these funds to local partners whose organizations address these needs and can demonstrate how the funds will be used to address challenges resulting from the impacts of COVID-19.
Priority areas include human services that address basic needs related to food and housing insecurity and assistance for small businesses and other organizations located in Estes Park that cater to residents of the Estes Valley.
