To help improve and restore Colorado's rivers and streams, and engage youth and families in the effort, GOCO is offering $250,000 in grants to fund habitat improvement projects along the state's waterways. GOCO's new Riparian Restoration Grant Program will require applicants to demonstrate they will use youth or volunteers in their projects, which may range from erosion mitigation to eradicating thirsty non-native plants and trees.

Non-profit land conservation organizations, municipalities, counties, political subdivisions of the state, Colorado Parks and Wildlife are all eligible to apply for Riparian Restoration Grants.
