Good Neighbor Fund Application

Good Neighbor Fund Application

The Good Neighbor Fund was created by the Telluride Foundation and is administered by Tri-County Health Network. The Good Neighbor Fund exists to help promote a stable workforce in San Miguel County, West Montrose County, Ouray County, and the Town of Rico. The Fund can provide emergency financial assistance to qualified applicants for daily needs such as rent, mortgage, medical bills, car repair, food assistance, utility assistance, and more to allow individuals to continue to live and work in these communities.

In order to be eligible for consideration, applicants must: currently live/work in Rico, San Miguel County, West Montrose County, or Ouray County and have done so for the past 3 years; demonstrate that they have exhausted all other resources; and show that they can maintain financial stability outside this non-recurring and unexpected crisis to remain living and working in the defined region.

Effective June 1, 2021, applicants who are approved for the Good Neighbor Fund may reapply for funding 3 years after their approval date. If an applicant was approved for the Good Neighbor Fund grant prior to June 1, 2021, they are eligible to reapply for funding 90 days after their most recent approval date.

The Good Neighbor Fund application is also used for both the Ouray Community Response Fund and the Town of Telluride Housing Fund. To access the Ouray Community Response fund, you must have lived and worked in Ouray County for at least one year; to qualify for the Town of Telluride Housing Fund, you must live in the Town of Telluride in non-town owned property. You can qualify for these funds based on the information you provide within your Good Neighbor Fund application. Both funds allow you to reapply every 3 months.
