Special Projects & Funding

Every year money by way of grants and other streams are left unleveraged. Money that local agencies can benefit from. But where does one start? How do you write a grant application for selection? And....what do you do if you get the funding?!?


What Colorado LTAP's Special Projects & Funding Support offers

With this service offering, Colorado LTAP partners with local agencies to provide support in identifying projects and funding streams (including the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL or IIJA)) that will benefit Colorado's local agencies. The Special Projects Coordinator will provide support with the funding application process, planning, implementation, program reporting and closing out the project.


Colorado LTAP exists to help. Our services below are offered a no cost.
