CWCB/CWA Healthy Rivers Fund Eliminated but Alternative Funding Sources Available

The Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) staff received a letter from the Department of Revenue dated November 12, 2015 stating that the Colorado Healthy Rivers Fund (CHRF) did not receive the $75,000 threshold amount of donations between January 1 and September 30, 2015. The program requires that the funding threshold level be met to stay in the voluntary tax checkoff program. The program was short of the mark with only $61,348 donated during that time period. It will not appear on the 2015 tax form. This is unfortunate news. However, in many ways the CHRF was the model for CWCB’s Colorado Watershed Restoration Program (CWRP).
