During the 2022 legislative session, the Colorado Department of Agriculture received an appropriation of $200,000 to dedicate to mental health programs.
CDA will create a grant program that will be available to organizations serving rural communities in Colorado. CDA is working on establishing the requirements of the grants and will hold a listening session in mid-September to consider input from rural communities and other stakeholders. Applications will open up in early October and will be open for 30 calendar days.
More information will be available soon about the date and time of the public meeting as well as the full parameters of the grants. To be notified about grant details, please sign up for the CDA newsletter.
Update: The listening session will take place on Thursday, September 15, at 10:30 am on Zoom.
