The 2020 Responsive Community Relief Funding opportunity supports Colorado nonprofits that facilitates services connecting people most significantly stressed by the effects of COVID-19. This opportunity has closed as of August 31, 2020, and our next funding opportunity will begin on June 1, 2021.
Traditionally, we have partnered with communities to reimagine how all of our neighbors access, benefit from, and value the importance of oral health care to make the greatest impact in Colorado communities. This year, we are responding to the effects of COVID-19 by providing funding opportunities to organizations that deliver coordinated, collaborative wrap-around services with multiple options that truly empower community members to access and navigate larger systems that impact their health.
This funding strategy aligns with our traditional approach to funding, yet extends beyond our oral health equity priority, to align current greater health concerns within three strategic focus areas:
- Access to care: All individuals have affordable, accessible and comprehensive health care.
- Prevention: Effective and innovative programs are available to support preventive and basic healthcare needs.
- Health Connections: People are able to balance supporting their basic needs and their ability to afford and access healthcare.
