The County Relations team manages the following county programs: the County Incentives Program and the County Grant Program. More information can be found below.
The County Incentives Program was launched in FY2014-15. The Department, working with its county partners, identified various incentives that are tied to county performance. If counties meet the requirements of the incentives, they are paid additional funds up to the maximum, which is their local share. The actual amount paid depends on how many incentives the county met.
The following documents should be utilized by counties for participation in the County Incentives Program. Any document required to be submitted to the Department should be sent to HCPFCountyRelations@state.co.us.
