About the Grant Program
The Colorado Rural Healthcare Grant Council was created through Executive Order by the governor in 2007. The Council is responsible for developing and providing oversight for the grant program funded by UnitedHealth Group. Through the Colorado Rural Health Care Grant Program, a total of $7.5 million is available for grant funds from 2008-2012. The Council is planning to award a minimum of $1 million per year in grants through scheduled grant cycles.
Organizations that are located outside of Colorado's urbanized areas that provide outpatient primary care services--including medical, oral, and mental health services--are eligible to apply. Grants will be funded for projects that support the rural health infrastructure and strengthen the capacity of rural entities to provide outpatient primary care services now and in the future. The maximum award amount is $50,000 per applicant. The Colorado Rural Health Center (CRHC) has been asked to manage this grant program.
