On June 16, Glenwood Springs City Council allocated $278,000 in Financial Advisory Board (FAB) grant funding to 30 non-profit and community organizations.

“These grant recipients provide a wide range of valuable support for our community,” said Mayor Jonathan Godes. “From vital human services to youth programs and community fun, City Council is honored to assist these organizations in their important work.”

The FAB grant program supports the strategic goals of City Council by aiding community organizations in protecting and preserving our quality of life, ensuring public safety, providing efficient and responsive city government, and generating sustainable economic development.
“City Council is grateful to our Financial Advisory Board volunteers who contribute significant time to this board and to the thoughtful and thorough review of grant applications each year,” said Mayor Pro-Tem Charlie Willman. “This is a tremendous program that does so much good for Glenwood Springs residents through the dedicated work of these local organizations.”
Financial Advisory Board
Recommendations for grant allocations were made by the Financial Advisory Board, a City Council-appointed group of community volunteers. The board meets monthly to advise and assist the City Manager and Finance Director in the preparation of the City budget, the establishment of accounting systems for the City, the planning of expenses, the projection of revenues and the analysis of the other fiscal matters presented to the Board by the City Council.
