Active People, Healthy Colorado Quick-Win funding

The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) invites communities to apply for quick-win funding to purchase equipment that helps promote physical activity. This funding will help support local efforts to enhance activity-friendly routes connecting to everyday destinations like schools, jobs, food sources, parks, and recreation. Quick-wins are low-cost, locally-driven projects designed to promote active transportation, increase safety, and enhance the streetscape through equipment or public art. Although these projects may be small or temporary, the intention is that the quick-win projects will promote physical activity participation and provide momentum toward or help implement policy change. Funding priority will be given to projects that help improve activity-friendly connections for lower-income populations, youth coalitions, or vulnerable road users, like older adults and people walking or bicycling.
