In this second episode of a three-part series, we highlight how rural communities are navigating the obstacles they face in accessing the influx of federal funding coming to Colorado in the wake of COVID-19. These rural communities are meeting the challenge by working together along with the assistance of nonprofit partners. Almost two decades ago, El Pomar Foundation established a regional partnership program bringing members from a diverse range of backgrounds who represent the business, nonprofit and public sectors together to provide firsthand information about the needs in their region. They offer the kind of insights that can only come from living, working and volunteering at a local level. This program is now being utilized to assess and address the unprecedented needs and challenges of rural communities following the COVID-19 pandemic.
