As a sponsored program at CSU’s Warner College of Natural Resources, CNHP is funded exclusively by grants from our partners (i.e., sponsors). Each year we work with a variety of federal, state, and local government agencies, as well as non-profit organizations of both local and national scale. In the past 10 years, we have partnered with about 70 different sponsors, and our annual grant award totals averaged $1.8 million.
CNHP is pleased to work with many partners who have small budgets to contribute to the conservation of Colorado’s elements of biodiversity, and not just with partners who have funding for multi-year, large scale projects. We have averaged 55 grants per year during the past 10 years, and about 30% of each year’s awards are for less than $10,000.
