$9.6 Million Grant to Increase Understanding, Support for Health Care Improvements in Colorado

The Colorado Trust announced today that it has made grants to 14 organizations to increase Coloradans’ understanding of health care issues, and their support for improved health coverage and a more effective, cost-efficient health care system. Research conducted by The Colorado Trust shows that Coloradans want to count on the health coverage and care they need to stay healthy, but that they are distrustful of both profit-driven health care and government involvement.

With $7.6 million in support from The Colorado Trust, and an additional $2 million from the Colorado Health Foundation, these grants will support communications, advocacy and leadership activities over three years to help Coloradans gain a better understanding for how health care can be strengthened.

The Colorado Rural Health Center, in partnership with ClinicNET and the Colorado Coalition for the Medically Underservered will be collecting and sharing stories of Coloradans’ experiences in the health care system about what works, challenges encountered and possible improvements
