Discretionary Funding Grants

The Denver County Cultural Council (DCCC) has allocated the 2023 Discretionary Fund pool towards the advancement of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) of Tier III organizations. Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Grants are designed to address the organization’s commitment to executing actions that operationalize these values within the organization and further support communities that have been historically marginalized including Black, Indigenous, Latino/e/x, Asian American and Pacific Islander, people of color or people of the global majority, people with disabilities and LGBTQIA+.

Organizations with a focused mission to support any of these historically marginalized communities may apply for funding to support current or new programming efforts.


Please submit your final report for any previous Organization DevelopmentInnovative Collaboration or EDI discretionary grants to Georgina Guidotti at Georgina.Guidotti@denvergov.org no later than Monday, Nov. 6, 4 p.m. Per Discretionary Grants guidelines, you must submit a final report before you are able to apply for additional funding. You do NOT need to submit a final report for the 2020 COVID-19 Emergency Fund grants.
