REFORMA Colorado Small Grants 2022-2023

REFORMA Colorado spends up to 20% of its annual operating budget on small grants to individual members. For FY July 2022 – June 2023 the REFORMA Colorado Officers have allocated $800 to this program which will fund four $200 Small Grants.

This year there are 3 application deadlines. Applications will be reviewed by REFORMA Colorado Officers. Funds will be awarded until the total allocation is spent; therefore, REFORMA Colorado members are encouraged to apply early.
