CHPG Funded Projects

The Colorado Heritage Planning Grant (CHPG) program is not currently funded due to state budget cuts.


Nearly $2 Million was awarded to projects involving over 100 local governments since the program was first introduced in 2000.  The projects funded addressed many of the impacts of growth including traffic congestion, loss of agriculture, loss of open space, fiscal impacts to local governments, wildfire hazards, and a lack of affordable housing to name a few.  The following is a list of the funded projects by each grant cycle year.
