The Tobacco Education, Prevention, and Cessation Grant Program Review Committee (“Review Committee”) was created in 2005 by Amendment 35 (House Bill 05-1262) with the responsibility for “ensuring that program priorities are established consistent with the Colorado tobacco prevention and control strategic plan, overseeing program strategies and activities, and ensuring that the program grants are in compliance with Section 25-3.5-805” of the Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.). (C.R.S. 25-3.5-804 (5)). The Review Committee is a 16-member working advisory board that develops funding priorities, reviews grant applications and makes recommendations to the Colorado Board of Health for the grant program. Volunteer members are appointed by the Board of Health, the legislature and the Executive Director of CDPHE and serve a three year term. The Review Committee meets on the third Friday of each month, from 1:00 – 4:30pm at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) in Denver; committee meetings are open to the public.
