·1 min read

Aug. 5—Boulder is offering grants for organizations interested in hosting events for the city's 2022 Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration.

The events should honor King's life and explore his work in the context of the Boulder community, according to a city news release.

In order to be eligible for a grant, an organization must be hosting an event with a goal of "inclusivity and respect for diversity." The events must be free, open and accessible to the public and held on Jan. 15, 16 or 17.

Any nonprofit group can apply, but applicants without 501c3 status must designate a fiscal agent to receive the grant funds on their behalf, the release states. Those selected must participate on a planning committee to coordinate the location and time of the activities.

Organizations are eligible for grants up to $1,000 for each event, though the Office of Arts and Culture is offering enhancement funds up to $1,500 for those that include an arts component for a maximum of $2,500.

Applications must be in by 5 p.m. Sept. 13. For more information, visit
