Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Jason Crow announced that he secured $9,950,000 for projects in Colorado’s 6th Congressional District in Fiscal Year 2022 spending bills.

Secured funding includes:

  • $450,000 for the At-Risk Intervention and Mentoring Program at UC Health; and
  • $1,000,000 for the Aurora Comprehensive Community Mental Health Center; and
  • $500,000 for the Black Health Initiative Infant Prematurity and Infant Mortality Project at Children’s Hospital Colorado; and
  • $1,350,000 for the City of Aurora Safe Outdoor Spaces Project; and
  • $950,000 for the Crnic Institute Immune Monitoring Station; and
  • $1,000,000 for the Douglas County Generational Opportunities to Achieve Long-Term Success (GOALS) Program; and
  • $2,000,000 for Expanding Services to Domestic Violence Victims in Adams County; and
  • $1,000,000 for the Underrepresented Minority Pipeline for Health Professions at CU Anschutz Medical Campus; and
  • $1,700,000 for the Village Exchange Center Facility Renovation Project.

This funding — nearly $10 million across nine different projects— is an historic investment in the families, businesses, and futures of CO-06.

“I work every day to deliver for the community, and I’m proud to have secured funding for these critical projects,” Rep. Crow said. “These projects deliver on my commitment to make our community stronger, safer, and more resilient. We are investing in everything from violence intervention programs to shelter and services for our housing insecure neighbors. I will continue to fight for our district and ensure we get the federal funding we need for our community. ”

Earlier this month, Rep. Crow spoke before the Appropriations Committee and advocated for these critical community needs (watch here). A full breakdown of all CO-06 Community Project Funding Requests can be found here.

The inclusion of this funding in the Appropriations Committee draft bill is the first step in the funding process. Rep. Crow will continue to fight for this funding as the spending bills move to the House Floor and negotiations with the Senate.
