Aid to Agencies

2023 Grant Recipients

For the 2023 grant year, Arapahoe County is awarding $2,079,414 for its annual Aid to Agencies grant program, which provides funding for eligible non-profit 501(C)(3) or 501(C) organizations that meet the application criteria and serve the County’s at-risk and underserved populations.

The Aid to Agencies program has undergone a review during the past year to align it more closely with organizations providing transportation, food assistance, case management, substance abuse treatment, mental/behavioral health treatment, shelter, domestic violence support, affordable housing and employment skills training. The Board approved more than 22 awards in these areas, in amounts ranging from $8,000 to $300,000 per grant, outlined below.

In addition to the competitive grant program, annual funding will be provided to ten agencies that supplement the County’s existing safety net services, with funding caps and stricter reporting requirements on how funds are being used. This methodology will ensure that grant funds are being used in the most fiscally responsible way while continuing to support the existing safety net. It also will foster more competition among new applicants, improving accountability to better know how these funds are being used for the County’s support of local non-profits.
