**Comprehensive Primary and Preventive Care (CPPC) Grant Program
No appropriation for CPPC grant awards was made for FY 2010-11, and during the 2011 legislative session, SB 11-216 permanently eliminated the CPPC grant program. The CPPC Grant Program was authorized by Sections 25.5-3-201 through 25.5-3-207, C.R.S., Comprehensive Primary and Preventive Care Grant Program Act. The program provided grants to health care providers in order to expand primary and preventive services to Colorado's low-income residents. Since the first grant awards were made in April 2001, approximately $32.3 million was disbursed to health care providers. This funding succeeded in providing medical, dental, mental health, optical, and pharmaceutical services to at least 136,360 patients in 317,676 encounters, and made funding available for 40 construction or remodeling projects that resulted in additional or updated facilities.
