Nonprofit Infrastructure Grant Program

The Nonprofit Infrastructure (NPI) Grant Program is a statewide grant program for small, community-based nonprofit organizations that provide services to communities that have historically been underrepresented, underserved, or under-resourced. The grant is designed for nonprofits in historically-marginalized communities that need help building capacity following the COVID-19 pandemic. This program is administered under the direction of the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA).

$33,100,000 in grants will be awarded, with selected organizations awarded up to $100,000.
