Grants to Colorado nonprofit and for-profit organizations, local governments, IHEs, and social enterprises to improve behavioral healthcare for residents in eligible locations. Funding is intended to support programs that address community needs and challenges as well as systemic gaps. Priority areas include, but are not limited to, early intervention for vulnerable youth, workforce development, and care coordination for those with complex needs. Funds must serve Larimer County.

Larimer County Behavioral Health Services (LC BHS) was created in response to overwhelming input from the community for enhanced and expanded behavioral health care across the county. The BHS Impact Fund Grant Program (formerly Distributed Services) allows Larimer County to invest directly in programs that serve the behavioral health needs of the community.

For 2021, the Impact Fund Grant Program will distribute funding through two types of grant funding; Targeted grant funding and Responsive grants.

Targeted grant funding is designed to meet the most urgent needs in the community and addresses systematic gaps in behavioral health care with concentrated focus and funding. This year, targeted funding includes:

  • Gary A. Darling Grant: Awarded to a program at the intersection of behavioral health and criminal justice
  • 2021 Targeted Grants as defined by the Fund's Advisory Groups and awarded to programs that address the following priorities:
    • Behavioral Health Care Coordination Across Services
    • Moderate/Intensive Care Coordination for Those with Complex Needs
    • Behavioral Health Workforce Development and Retention
    • Enhancing First Responder and Behavioral Health Crisis-to-Care Collaboration Efforts    
    • Prevention Education and Early Intervention for Vulnerable Youth  
    • Increasing Access to Behavioral Healthcare in Non-traditional Settings   

Responsive Grants: Open to a variety of programs, responsive funding allows organizations to define the problem they want to address and propose solutions to the challenges faced in the communities they serve.

Funding Priorities:

  • Access and Affordability: Increase access to affordable and appropriate behavioral health care
  • Care Coordination and System Integration: Increase care coordination and systems integration for behavioral health patients
  • Early Identification and Intervention: Increase early identification and intervention in behavioral health problems
  • Stigma Reduction & Public Awareness: Reduce stigma and increase public awareness of behavioral health issues
  • Quality Care: Increase the quality of behavioral health care
  • Prevention: Prevent the onset of new behavioral health problems
