Rebuild Lyons Grant Applications Being Accepted

LCF has continued the “Rebuild Lyons” fund in the wake of last year’s devastating flood.  The goal of the Fund is to now provide financial support for non-profit organizations and government bodies (e.g., Town of Lyons) affected by the flood.  The fund is intended to meet longer term unmet needs of those groups/bodies impacted.  Grants up to $10,000 per project per group/body will be available.  Grant applicants must be a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization (or have a 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor), or be a local, state or county government body, that is located in the Greater Lyons Area.  The Greater Lyons Area is a geographic area in Boulder County north of Nelson Road, west of Hygiene, and east of Allenspark (it includes the Riverside/Raymond area).  It also includes lands in southern Larimer County in the Spring Gulch/Blue Mountain, Pinewood Springs, and Big Elk Meadows areas.  The Rebuild Lyons Fund will provide support in the following categories: Non-profit organizations and governments who have incurred significant expenses or curtailment of current or future operations due to the flood that will not be reimbursed by insurance, relief aid, or other public or private sources.  Individuals, households, and families are not eligible to apply.  LCF encourages these entities to apply for funds from other public or private entities, such as the Lyons Emergency Assistance Fund (LEAF) of the Lyons Community Church. This email address is being protected from spambots.
