Request for Proposals for FY 2023
CCWCD Match Funding Projects

Center of Colorado Water Conservancy District (CCWCD) is pleased to announce funding opportunities for projects which benefit our vision of ‘Park County Water for Park County’. Projects must meet the mission of CCWCD to preserve, protect and defend the waters of Park County and be contained within the boundaries of the District. Examples of projects include those that enhance water supply or water quality, improve stream conditions and aquatic habitat, or provide education on water quality and resources.

One-time funding is open to any organization or property owner that meets the criteria and is subject to review and approval of the CCWCD Board of Directors.  A minimum 1:1 ratio of matching funds is expected. However, proposals will be considered on a case by case basis.  Amounts available are subject to board appropriation.

Deadline to submit proposals is 5:00 pm Mountain Time, September 15, 2023.  Applicants should submit their applications as early as possible to allow ample time to work with the district ensuring requirements can be met prior to the submittal deadline. Applications submitted after this deadline will not be considered.
