Who We Fund

As outlined in the GOCO Amendment to the Colorado Constitution, entities eligible to receive GOCO grants include:

  • Cities
  • Counties
  • Title 32 special districts with parks and recreation authority
  • Non-profit land conservation organizations
  • Political subdivisions of the state
  • Colorado Parks and Wildlife

In many cases, eligible entities can sponsor projects on behalf of entities that are ineligible for GOCO funding. For example, a city can apply for a GOCO grant on behalf of a school for the construction of a playground on school property, and a non-profit land conservation organization can partner with a private landowner to conserve their land.

Common ineligible entities include:

  • School districts
  • Community groups and volunteers
  • Businesses
  • Private landowners
  • Foundations
  • Non-profits that are not land conservation organizations
