Funding Opportunity to Strengthen Primary Care

Molly PereiraFeatured News

The Colorado Health Foundation has announced a funding opportunity, designed to increase the number of Coloradans receiving quality primary care services through both grant and loan funds.

This initiative is intended to support primary care providers by offering low-interest loans in addition to grants so organizations can access the flexible capital they need to increase access to and improve the delivery of comprehensive, person-centered care. Grants of up to $500,000 and/or low-interest loans in the range of $500,000 to $5 million are available to clinics for physical and information technology infrastructure as well as working capital related to expansion or improvements to care delivery. Loan options will be available to for-profit safety net providers, many of which serve rural Coloradans.

Funding Opportunity: Strengthening Primary Care 

Colorado organizations providing primary care services may apply for funds to support the following projects:

  • Facility acquisition, construction, renovation or expansion
  • Medical and office equipment purchases
  • Hardware, software, installation and technical assistance costs associated with health information technology systems
  • Working capital for expenses associated with new or expanded services

Nonprofit entities are encouraged to consider applying for loans or a mix of grant and loan funding if appropriate. Applicants may indicate their interest in applying for a low-interest loan within the grant application.
