Grants to Colorado emergency medical service providers to improve services throughout the state. Applicants must submit a pre-proposal prior to applying. Funding is intended for a range of purposes including but not limited to planning, developing, implementing, maintaining, and enhancing the quality of emergency medical and trauma services.
System Improvement Funding: Categories include system improvement, technical assistance, conference support and regional medical direction. Requests in this category must include an evaluation component that allows the organization and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to evaluate the effectiveness and impact of the grant award.
For information about the above categories, see the System Improvement Categories section on Page 12 of the Funding Guide in Supporting Documents, below.
System improvement funding does not replace funding through the provider grants program. Projects that can be requested in a provider grant program category must apply there. Examples of this may include requests for training equipment, regional equipment requests or requests for personnel and salary support.
Provider Grants: Application categories include EMTS vehicles, communications, data collection, EMS and trauma equipment, injury prevention, personnel and services, recruitment and retention, and other.
