The Town of Estes Park recently revised its processes for reviewing requests for funding, in-kind support and sponsorships from outside entities. The Town appropriates support to local organizations that help meet the needs of Estes Valley residents at the discretion of the Town Board, subject to current Town Board goals and availability of funds. Included in this program are Community Initiative Funds, for which the Town is currently accepting applications from organizations serving the Estes Valley. Community Initiative Funds were previously known as Community Service Grants.

Annual Reporting Requirement
Any entity receiving either Base Funding or Community Initative Funding from the Town must complete and submit an annual report to the Assistant Town Administrator by May 30 of the year following the year in which funding was received (i.e. May 30, 2019 for funding received in the 2018 calendar year).
This report must be no more than 350 words and should be structured as an educational article by an organization staff or board member discussing the programs and services provided to the community and how they were supported by the funding provided by the Town. This article should help an audience of community members understand the work of the organization as well as the how the Community Initiative Funding helped make it possible. One-two images pertaining representing the program may also be submitted if available. The Town reserves the right to edit portions of the article pertinent to its funding program and share its content with the community on various Town information channels.
