Kaiser Permanente Colorado’s grantfunding opportunities are administered through request for proposals (RFP). Invitations and updates are published here.

New Funding Opportunity:

Strengthening Partnerships to Support Economic Opportunity for Young Adults 18 to 25 Years of Age.

We’re excited to announce a new funding opportunity focused on strengthening partnerships that support young adults, who have become disconnected from school or employment, in their efforts to achieve economic stability. We will invest up to $1,000,000 to support up to 5 partnerships.

This funding opportunity is expected to achieve the following outcomes by the end of the 3-year funding period:

  • Increase the ability of community organizations to work in partnership to support young adults
  • Increase the number of young adults who receive needed wrap-around services
  • Increase the number of young adults who complete education or training opportunities and/or obtain employment

The main applicant must be a Colorado 501(c)(3) in good standing with the IRS. Partner organizations may be either a Colorado 501(c)(3) or a government institution; schools/school districts are ineligible to serve as either the main applicant or as a partner organization. To be considered for funding, organizations must also meet specific eligibility criteria outlined in the request for proposals (RFP).

Organizations interested in applying for funding should review our frequently asked questions and read the RFP in its entirety. See the complete RFP.

Please share this announcement broadly within your networks and with organizations that may be interested in applying. Thank you for your consideration. Together we build a healthier Colorado.

We facilitated a webinar on March 9, for interested applicants to ask questions, listen to the recording.
