2018-19 Sector Partnership Bridge + Growth Grants

July 24, 2018 - The CWDC supports Colorado’s 25 sector partnerships by providing consultative and financial technical assistance. The 2018-19 sector partnership bridge and growth grants are intended to support the sustainability and growth of sector partnerships.

All eligible sector partnerships have two opportunities to apply for grant funding:

  • Opportunity A: bridge + growth grant
  • Opportunity B: growth grant only

Opportunity A is both the bridge and growth grants. The bridge grant is a $12,000 grant to support sector partnership initiatives and the growth grant is an opportunity for sector partnerships to participate in a new match program where CWDC grant funding will be issued to match cash investments up to $18,000. Cash investments may come from businesses, local nonprofit organizations, and foundations. The cash investments may not be state or federal dollars.

Opportunity B is for sector partnerships wanting to pursue only cash investment and growth grant match funding. The growth grant is designed to incentivize sector partnerships who raise cash investments to support their business-led priorities. The cash investment that is raised by the sector partnership will be matched dollar for dollar up to $30,000.

The deadline to apply is Aug. 2, 2018. Please contact the Procurement and Contracts Office at CDLE_Purchasing@state.co.us with any questions.
