Helping Colorado communities be healthy and thrive.
WHAT WOULD MAKE THE PLACE YOU LIVE THE BEST IT CAN BE?
WHAT ELSE AFFECTS THE HEALTH AND HAPPINESS OF YOU, YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR COMMUNITY?
We want to work with teenagers, young adults, parents, seniors, veterans, newcomers, long-time residents and anyone else interested in shaping the future of their own towns and cities.
What makes your community great? What makes it a tough place to live? What could make it better? That’s up to you to say.
It shouldn’t be up to a person sitting behind a desk in Denver to decide what’s best for your town. You are the expert on the place where you live.
Our goal is to help communities like yours work toward your vision for a healthy and prosperous future.
To better understand the impact of the Community Partnerships strategy across Colorado, The Trust will work with contractors to perform two different evaluations beginning in 2018. First, an empowerment evaluation contractor will work closely with funded communities and their local evaluators to coach and empower them to design and conduct local-level evaluation of their health equity plans. Second, The Trust will work with an external contractor to complete a macro-evaluation of the strategy, for which requests for qualifications are now being accepted. On April 4, 2018, The Trust held a webinar to provide more information and answer questions from prospective applicants for the macro-evaluation. Click here to download the webinar recording, and click here to download the complete RFQ (the deadline to submit a response is April 27, 2018).
Evaluation contact: Courtney Ricci, PhD, Head of Evaluation & Learning for Community Change, The Colorado Trust, 303-837-1200.
GRANT AMOUNT: $15,517,030
