El Pomar seeks to expand enrichment programs
Does your organization have an after-school or summer enrichment program?
The El Pomar Foundation’s High Country Council, which serves Clear Creek, Eagle, Lake, Pitkin and Summit counties, is accepting requests for proposals from organizations that provide or seek to provide quality out-of-school programs.
Applications will be accepted through April 10.
A focus of the council, which is part of El Pomar’s regional partnership program, is helping children realize their full potential by extending the positive benefits of participation in after-school and summer programs to all students.
Organizations must be a 501(c)3 or government equivalent and provide quality out-of-school programs for students who lack access. Ideally, recipient organizations already serve under-resourced, low-income or otherwise at-risk youth.
To request a grant application, please email email@example.com. Applications must be completed and submitted electronically.

Current Basalt officials say the town government has violated the Colorado Taxpayers’ Bill of Right by increasing the property tax mill levy over the prior years 10 times since the mid-2000s. Two former mayors contend the mill levy could be adjusted in any given year as long as it didn’t exceed the mill levy in 1994. It’s a $2 million question.
