The Grant Program Portfolio
GOCO offers competitive grant programs for outdoor recreation, land conservation, and stewardship projects in Colorado, all outlined below. For a quick view of our 2022–2023 programs and their timelines, download a Grant Calendar linked below.
Colorado municipalities, counties, and Title 32 special districts with parks and recreation authority are all eligible for GOCO grants. Nonprofit conservation organizations, political subdivisions of the state, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife are also eligible. In many cases, eligible entities may sponsor projects on behalf of ineligible entities. For example, a nonprofit land trust can partner with private landowners to conserve their land, or a city can apply for a grant on behalf of a school to build a playground.
