Colorado gets $19.2 million from Homeland Security

DENVER, Colorado – Colorado will dole out $19.2 million in grants from the Department of Homeland Security to agencies across the state.

State officials said Wednesday that more than 80 percent of the funds will go to county and local agencies to support emergency responders and improve disaster preparedness.

A multiagency committee will review and score grant applications in July. Gov. Bill Ritter and an advisory committee will approve the grants, which will be awarded by September.

Colorado agencies proposed nearly $22 million worth of projects.
