The City of Longmont has opened its 2022 application process for human service grants to community agencies to assist the most vulnerable residents to meet their individual and family’s basic physical, social, economic and/or emotional needs.
Overall, funding will target a range of safety net services (that includes prevention, early invention and support services) that strengthen the following areas so individuals and families can stabilize and thrive:
Housing Stability: supporting a continuum of affordable housing options; helping people find and sustain stable housing.
Self-sufficiency and resilience: supporting households during tough economic times; helping households attain steady employment with livable wages and move toward self-sufficiency; and helping households remain as self-reliant as possible.
Food & Nutrition: helping households obtain adequate quantity and quality of food.
Health & Well-being: ensuring access to affordable medical, dental and mental health care.
Education & Skill Building: starting young and continuing throughout all stages of life, offering education, and skills training that are the building blocks of self-sufficiency.
Safety and Justice: ensuring safe and supportive environments for vulnerable children and adults.
