Thornton Assistance Funds
Since 1983, the City of Thornton has provided grant funds to assist nonprofit organizations that help Thornton residents meet their basic needs and enhance their ability to be self-sufficient. Basic needs are identified as food, housing, health and medical, or human services. Nonprofit organizations that help people move from relying on private or public assistance to providing for one's own needs is also eligible for funding. A committee of residents reviews the grant applications and makes a recommendation to City Council.
We are currently accepting applications from nonprofit organizations for the 2019 Thornton Assistance Funds grant program. Applications are due January 18 at noon. Click on the "Grant Application Process" link on the right of this page for more information.
