Colorado Springs Health Foundation approves $1.4 MM in grants to improve health in El Paso and Teller Counties

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO The Colorado Springs Health Foundation Board of Trustees recently approved $1.4 million in grants to 35 organizations serving El Paso and/or Teller Counties. These organizations address one or more of the Foundation’s funding focus areas:

  • Access to care for those in greatest need
  • The workforce shortage of primary care or psychiatric providers
  • Suicide prevention
  • School-based healthy eating and/or active living efforts for children and families

These funding focus areas were developed based on the Foundation’s mission, local need, focus group and key stakeholder input, and evidence behind what drives community health.

“As we enter our second year of grantmaking, we are honored to support the good work of so many local organizations. Our community’s good health remains our singular aim, and we believe that these investments align with our mission to target immediate health care needs and encourage healthy living,” said BJ

Scott, board chair.
