Today, as communities across Colorado change and grow, so too must the work of Caring for Colorado. We are looking toward the future and asking ourselves what we can do to improve health for people in our state. We invite your input on these questions as we chart Caring for Colorado’s direction and funding priorities:

  • What are the most pressing health needs across Colorado that we should prioritize for funding?

  • How can we work more effectively to promote health equity?
