The Department of Local Affairs’ (DOLA), in collaboration with the Regional Access Partners Network, awarded $31,587,500.01, across 489 statewide nonprofits, for their projects through the Nonprofit Infrastructure (NPI) Grant Program.

After Colorado House Bill 22-1356 was signed into law on June 3, 2022, this program was established to assist communities who were disproportionately affected by the pandemic and had limited access to state and federal assistance.

“We are so pleased to announce the recipients of the NPI grant program after months of careful and thoughtful evaluation,” said Kodi Johnson, Program Manager at the Department of Local Affairs. “These much needed funds will help community organizations throughout our state continue their important work of servicing underrepresented populations.”

The final 489 grants were selected through a rigorous process aimed at identifying and aiding nonprofits that help historically-marginalized communities.
