SIM small grants

Did your practice apply for a cohort-3 SIM small grant? Make sure you read the communication that was sent to practices by the SIM office regarding the official process and next steps. Please refer to the resources on this page and email Erin Walti ( with any questions about the process.

SIM practices have the opportunity to apply for up to $40,000 in small grants to meet SIM milestones and achieve goals outlined in their practice improvement plans. The funding from these grants is made possible from a $3 million grant from the Colorado Health Foundation, distributed amongst each of the three SIM cohorts. Cohort-1 practices have already been using their awarded funds in innovative ways, and cohort-2 practices are underway using funds to further their integration goals. The cohort-3 small grant program application is now closed.
