Communities deserve the best quality of life possible. GOCO invests in the processes and projects to give people greater access to the outdoors. Apply to this program to help develop and revitalize parks, trails, schoolyards, fairgrounds, environmental education facilities, and other outdoor projects important to your Colorado community.
We fund community-driven projects of all sizes in communities big and small through this flexible program. We collaborate with grantees to support efforts through all phases, concept to completion. For example, funding might support local capacity for project management, land acquisition for development, community-centered planning and design, and project implementation—and all within a single grant. In the end, through this program, we celebrate the incredible and unique impacts the outdoors has across Colorado’s diverse communities.
Matching requirements and project timelines will be customized to our partners and your projects. While there is no maximum request amount, we expect most requests to fall below $1 million for any given grant cycle.
