Health Equity Fund Funding

Note: The City of Boulder Open Data Catalog will be migrating to a new platform in fall 2020. A link to the new dataset location is included here under 'Data and Resources'. Please bookmark as the future site of Boulder Open Data.

This data represents annual funding allocations through The City of Boulder's Health Equity Fund (HEF). The HEF provides funding to community organizations and agencies promoting health equity for Boulder residents. Funding is awarded through an annual competitive process based on alignment with the intent and language of the Sugar-Sweetened Beverage Product Distribution Tax, a ballot measure which was approved in November 2016.

The HEF aims to reduce disparities and to improve health equity among our at-risk population. Examples of HEF-supported programs include those that prevent diseases (e.g. obesity, diabetes, heart disease, oral diseases) linked to consumption of sugary beverages; increase access to healthy food and clean water; expand health services and wellness programs; and more.
