Supplemental Environmental Projects Program

State Agencies
Funder Name:
Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment
Eligible Applicants:
Local governments and Utility Districts
Non-profits organizations
Relevant Project Area:
Habitat Improvement, Biodiversity, & Riparian Restoration
Environment, Natural Resource Management, and Human Health
Funding Range:
This is a mitigation program and not a traditional gratn program. CDPHE collect project ideas from interested third parties to be included in our internal Supplemental Environmental Project idea database. Project ideas are kept for consideration in future enforcement cases.
All project ideas are screened for compliance with our project policy and there are no guarantees that any project will be selected. If a regulated entity is interested in funding a specific project idea, we'll contact the entity proposing the idea and may request a full project proposal form with additional project details.

When a regulated entity is found to be in violation of environmental regulations, we may assess a monetary penalty or fine. If the facility agrees to implement a Supplemental Environmental Project, it might be eligible to mitigate a portion of the penalty.

Funding levels vary depending on the penalty fees.
