Community Foundation Boulder County has raised more than $27 million and allocated $7 million in direct financial assistance for over 90% of households that were damaged or destroyed, according to the release.
This money has helped to fill gaps in federal funding for those who have needed aid after the fire, according to a press release.
Funds raised will be used to improve the lives of survivors. Two grants will also be available to support wildfire victims, the Impact on Education and the Boulder Jewish Family Services grants.
The first will ensure additional behavioral health advocates are available at the most fire-affected schools in the Boulder Valley School District. The second grant will provide crisis counseling to anyone who needs it in individual and group settings, with trauma-informed practices, the release said.
