The Weld Trust’s grant program Idea Inquiry deadline is June 23rd. The Idea Inquiry is a 2-3 sentence description from a nonprofit, school, or government entity for a program or project in the areas of health and education. The organization must be located in Weld County, or the services must be exclusively for Weld County residents. Based on the Idea Inquiry, applicants may be invited to submit a full application. This grant cycle is expected to fund the approved grants at year-end.
The Weld Trust awards grants within their seven Key Funding Initiatives: Access to Resources (K-12), Behavioral Health, Childhood Literacy, Food Security, Health Habits, Housing Stability, and Workforce Development. “Last year, we awarded health grants to help those experiencing homelessness find stable housing, assist with food distribution, and support the behavioral health needs of youth and adults,” shared The Weld Trust’s Chief Executive Officer Jeff Carlson. “The education grants we awarded supported students with technology in schools, tutoring, and internships as well as helped upskill and re-skill adult learners.” In 2022, The Weld Trust awarded over $12.8 million in health and education grants
to 82 nonprofits and schools.
“The nonprofits and schools in Weld County are implementing some incredible and impactful programs for their citizens,” stated Carlson. “We look forward to seeing the Idea Inquiries we receive with this next grant cycle.”
