Emergency Medical Education grants
Annually, approximately $6.7 million in funding is available for improving and expanding Colorado’s Emergency Medical and Trauma Services (EMTS) system. Of this, $500, 000 will be set aside for education grants through the Colorado Resource for Emergency and Trauma Education (CREATE) program, and $150, 000 will be set aside for emergency grants. Up to 10% of the total grant funds available can be awarded as system improvement funding, approximately $670, 000, and the rest is available for EMTS provider grant awards.
