Region Training Grants
Senate Bill 03-103 created a Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Board cash fund for the purpose of providing funding for continuing education training of Colorado peace officers through grants awarded by the POST Board. The Grant program is funded by a $1 fee assessed on motor vehicle registrations. Approximately $3.8 million dollars is awarded through this program annually.
POST distributes the funds on an annual basis through a competitive grant process. Ten (10) training regions have been established throughout the state that are responsible for applying for funds on behalf of the law enforcement agencies within their geographical location. Non-profit training providers, local governments, colleges and universities also receive funding to provide training to law enforcement agencies throughout the state.
