Tony Grampsas Youth Services Program

The Tony Grampsas Youth Services (TGYS) Program is a statutory program providing funding to local organizations for prevention, intervention, and education programs for children, youth, and their families designed to prevent youth crime and violence, youth marijuana use, and child abuse and neglect. TGYS is defined and guided by Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.) 26-6.8-101 through 106. Funds for the 2017-18 State Fiscal Year (SFY) are allocated to TGYS from the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement, the State of Colorado General Fund and the Marijuana Tax Cash Fund.

TGYS operates on a three-year grant cycle. The current grant cycle runs July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2020.  Each year a non-competitive renewal application and contract renewal process is required pending contract and program compliance by grantees. 

In accordance with C.R.S. 26-6.8-101 through 106, a 13-member board oversees and provides leadership for the TGYS Program. The TGYS Board is authorized to establish: program guidelines, grant application timelines, match requirements, criteria for awarding grants, and result-oriented criteria for measuring the effectiveness of programs that receive any type of TGYS funds. Visit the TGYS Board page for more information.
