Final evaluation and feedback



In 2022, House Bill (HB) 22-1267 became law and requires the Office of Health Equity (OHE) in the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to create a culturally relevant and affirming healthcare training grant program aimed at building the capacity of health care providers to provide culturally responsive care. HB 22-1267 requires the OHE to contract with a third-party administrator to administer the grant program.

The total budget for the grant program is $900,000, of which $810,000 must be used for awards to sub-grantees (non-profit organizations and associations of health care providers). The purpose of this RFP is to solicit responses from qualified Offerors to implement the grant program, including developing a Request for Applications (RFA) process, application review, scoring and selection, grant fund dissemination and management, and performance management.
