About the review committee
  • The committee is a 16-member working advisory board that develops funding priorities, reviews grant applications and makes recommendations to the Board of Health for the grant program.
  • Volunteer members are appointed by the Board of Health, the Legislature and our executive director, and serve a three-year term.
  • The Tobacco Education, Prevention and Cessation Grant Program 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. (CRS 25-3.5-804 (5)).
