Where Do You GOCO

Where Do You GOCO - January 2017 Closed Projects

Wednesday, February 15, 2017 -- GOCO

There’s a lot of fanfare around grant awards, but what happens after the ceremonial checks are presented, the reporters have published their articles, and the interviews are over? Our grantees get down to business.

GOCO funding has built parks and trails, helped communities recover from floods and schools build new playgrounds, protected wildlife habitat and open space, and improved outdoor amenities like campgrounds and boat ramps. We’re funded completely by Colorado Lottery proceeds and have invested in more than 4,900 projects in all 64 counties. Read our annual report for more information >>

Each year, we award funding through competitive grant programs to communities across the state and to Colorado Parks & Wildlife. Grantees are typically allowed about two years to complete projects.

Where Do You GOCO - July Projects

Friday, August 12, 2016 -- GOCO

Okay, where did summer go?! Fortunately, there's a silver lining for students at three schools - they'll have new playgrounds to enjoy on their first day back. We also had three land conservation properties close (just like buying a house...there's a lot to do after you committ the funding!) and saw the completion of flood recovery,  habitat restoration, and trail construction projects. Keep scrolling (or play around in the new interactive map feature!) to see what $1.5 million in Colorado Lottery revenues look like:

Where Do You GOCO - April Projects

Tuesday, May 31, 2016 -- GOCO

A whopping $9 million in GOCO projects finished in April, with a majority coming from our partners at Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW). GOCO invests $30 million every year in programs at CPW. Keep in mind that just because they’ve “closed” in April doesn’t mean CPW isn’t still hard at work maintaining state parks and trails, helping wildlife, and making your experience in the outdoors great.
