The Colorado River District is opening a special round of its Community Funding Partnership to to support applications for federal funding made available through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

Community Funding Partnership’s accelerator grants are designed to help Western Slope water users build a competitive application for federal funding. This includes support in grant-writing, feasibility, design, preliminary environmental review, benefits analysis and engineering. The Colorado River District will consider supporting up to 85% of funding needs for this limited funding opportunity.

Grant deliverables must include a timely application to a federal funding opportunity that must be submitted by Dec. 31, 2023 and in no cases later than Dec. 31, 2024. Priority will be given to applications targeting a 2023 federal funding round. For more information, visit ColoradoRiverDistrict.org.



Applications for the Community Funding Partnership grants are due Aug. 1.
