HDGP Funding Opportunities

Back to Health Disparities Grant Program

The Health Disparities Grant Program (HDGP) is funded by the Colorado state tobacco tax revenue as mandated by Amendment 35 (A35) and conducts its funding cycle according to the state fiscal year (July 1 – June 30).  All A35 awards funding is contingent upon Colorado State Board of Health approval, spending authority of the program and appropriations by the state legislature each year.  The Health Equity Commission assists in the review of the grant program.
