The City of Aspen’s Grant Program supports non-profit organizations that promote a mentally and physically healthy community; provide protection for our natural environment; and create opportunities for connections for all community members, through partnerships, ease of access, stewardship, arts and cultural enrichment, and innovation.

Since 2011, the City of Aspen has contributed more than $17 million in grant funding to our local non-profits in recognition of the vital role they play in our community.
