Start planning now for the 2GO community innovation grant!
When programs and policies are designed with the whole family’s future in mind, and families have the resources and social networks available to be successful, opportunity becomes a family tradition.
Knowing this, the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) will be seeking innovative proposals to addresssystemic challenges and empower families to reach their full potential. The 2Generation Opportunities (2GO) Pilot will award up to 10 grants of $100,000 each to regional and community collaborators who propose innovative ways to create a path to the middle class for whole families.
2GO grants must be used to build community readiness and collaboration to better serve families and ensure outcomes for the whole family. Following an initial planning stage, grantees will receive funding to pilot their ideas for proof of concept and effectiveness. CDHS anticipates that up to four years of additional funding may be available for successful projects.
The request for proposal is expected to be released on August 29, 2018. Proposals must be received by CDHS no later than September 28, 2018.
