Funders and their grantees have many questions about how these dollars will be deployed in the region, what particular areas will be prioritized, and how we can ensure that this historic investment of federal funding supports our most impacted communities, including Black, Indigenous and communities of color.

Colorado and New Mexico are places where the U.S. Economic Development Administration, state agencies, funders, and nonprofit organizations are working to engage and coordinate as the new Federal administration puts forth priority investments in closer alignment with issues important to funders in our region and across the country.
