From the Glenwood Springs Post Independent:

The Colorado Basin Roundtable (CBRT) is looking to help fund projects that will address environmental and recreational water needs involving the Colorado River and its tributaries. Funding for these projects would be from the roundtable’s Water Supply Reserve Account, which is administered by the Colorado Water Conservation Board.

As much as $2 million may be available for competitive grants statewide. Although there is no limitation to grant requests, typical grants are about $200,000. CBRT hopes to identify up to five projects for near-term funding and implementation, and other projects may be considered for long-term prioritization.

The CBRT is sponsoring an informal workshop to help potential project applicants with the funding process. It takes place from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on March 15, in the Blue River Room of the North Branch Library in Silverthorne. Interested parties should prepare a short project summary based on criteria that can be found on the Colorado River District website at www.ColoradoRiverDistrict.org or by calling Jacob Bornstein, CWCB (303-866-3441) or Lane Wyatt, CBRT (970-468-0295, ext. 116).
