The Good Neighbor Fund was created by the Telluride Foundation. The purpose of the Fund is to promote a stable workforce in Rico, San Miguel County, West Montrose County, and Ouray County and provide emergency financial assistance to qualified applicants for daily needs such as rent, medical bills, car repair, food assistance, utility assistance and more as determined necessary to remain living and working in these counties. 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 1 year; have not received a Good Neighbor Fund grant award in 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.
