Colorado Springs Health Foundation approves $118,350 in grants to support collaborations in El Paso and Teller Counties

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO The Colorado Springs Health Foundation Board of Trustees recently approved a total of $118,350 in grants to four health-related collaborative efforts in El Paso and/or Teller County:

  • Center for Healthy Living and Wellness at Mt. Carmel Center of Excellence, a collaborative with Regis University and UCCS ($11,350)
  • PACE Community Integration and Expansion Collaborative ($20,000)
  • Penrose-St. Francis Neighborhood Nurse Centers Collaborative ($37,000)
  • Woodland Aquatic Project ($50,000)

These collaborative efforts address one or more of the Foundation’s funding focus areas: access to care for those in greatest need; workforce shortage of primary care and psychiatric providers; suicide prevention; school-based efforts to improve child/family healthy eating and/or active living.

“Collaboration is one of our Foundation’s values. We developed our recent Fostering Collaboration grant opportunity as a way to further this value by supporting existing collaborative efforts whose work aligns with our funding focus areas,” said BJ Scott, board chair.

“Solving complex health concerns often requires diverse perspectives, expertise and ideas. Collaborative work is an important way to engage a multidisciplinary approach toward improving our community’s most pressing health issues,” noted Cari Davis, executive director.

Colorado Springs Health Foundation has awarded more than $2.6 MM in grants during 2016, its first year of grantmaking.
