SLV projects receive GOCO financial support

The Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) board has awarded $334,432 to projects in southern Colorado. Among those receiving funds were San Luis Valley Great Outdoors, who received a $250,532 grant to deploy maintenance crews on trails across the Valley. Additionally, Southern Plains Land Trust received a $50,000 grant to hire a restoration manager for maintenance across its nature preserves. Finally, the City of Alamosa received a $33,900 grant to expand access to the Rio Grande within city limits.

These grants are part of GOCO’s Resilient Communities program, which helps guarantee partners advance outdoor recreation, stewardship, and land protection work. Funded projects will respond to one-time, immediate needs or opportunities that have emerged in direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic all within the context of GOCO’s five program values: resource conservation, outdoor stewardship, community vitality, equitable access, and youth connections to the outdoors.
