- Housing Stability: supporting a continuum of affordable housing options; helping people find and sustain stable housing.
- Self-sufficiency and resilience: supporting households during tough economic times; helping households attain steady employment with livable wages and move toward self-sufficiency; and helping households remain as self-reliant as possible.
- Food & Nutrition: helping households obtain adequate quantity and quality of food.
- Health & Well-being: ensuring access to affordable medical, dental and mental health care.
- Education & Skill Building: starting young and continuing throughout all stages of life, offering education, and skills training that are the building blocks of self-sufficiency.
- Safety and Justice: ensuring safe and supportive environments for vulnerable children and adults.
- The city will consider applications from private or public, not-for-profit or for-profit, non-governmental or governmental agencies that serve Longmont residents. All agencies must be legally incorporated entities in good standing.
- Eligible agencies must primarily serve low and moderate-income Longmont residents, and must be able to document that their services benefit a significant number of Longmont residents. Agencies that operate on a countywide or regional basis must also demonstrate how they successfully involve the Longmont community in planning and program development to most effectively address the needs of Longmont residents.
- City of Longmont funding is intended to support direct service non-sectarian programs. These funds are not intended to be used as start-up money to establish a new human service agency or program, or for major capital purchases or facility improvements.
