In 2021, DHS released its first Human Together Community Grants funding opportunity in response to community conversations we held with residents and community partners to learn how best Denver Human Services can support communities. We were asked to ensure that we bolstered existing work in the community and didn’t try to create new programs. This is what led to the allocation of funds to support the Human Together community Grants program. Here is a link to the 2021 Human Together Community Grants Impact Summary.
As Denver continues to recover from the devastating and disproportional economic and public health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to making strategic investments in the community that create lasting change. We see these grants as a prime opportunity to support our partners in their work to build resilient communities for generations to come.
