The Resource Exchange (TRE), which provides support for disabled people, received the single largest sum, $610,000, in the latest round of grants by the Colorado Springs Health Foundation, which doles out money paid by UCHealth under its 40-year lease of city-owned Memorial Hospital.
Some of the $6 million in grants to 52 organizations announced April 19 are multi-year allocations, including that for TRE.
Other organizations that received large awards include Crossroads' Turning Points and Early Connections Learning Centers, $300,000 each; Ascending to Health Respite Care, $270,000; and Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation, $295,000.
Some grants went to other government agencies, such as $75,000 to the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs' aging center, $133,297 to El Paso County Public Health and $240,000 to the city's Mountain Metropolitan Transit.
The foundation focuses on access to care, a workforce shortage in primary and psychiatric care, suicide prevention and healthy environments.
