Changes to the Public Policy Advocacy Focus Area Application Timeline
Caring for Colorado adjusted the timing of the Public Policy Advocacy Focus Area annual grant cycle so that it does not conflict with the legislative session. This new approach will begin in fall 2023. We will provide more information ahead of the funding cycle. Please note: only organizations seeking funding under the Public Policy Advocacy Focus Area will apply in the fall cycle.
For information about the application process or for general questions about eligibility, please contact our grants team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our philanthropy team will hold limited office hours for organizations that have specific questions not addressed in the webinar or Q&As. Please contact the philanthropy lead for the focus area with which you are most aligned.
