The Colorado Foundation for Public Health and the Environment (CFPHE) works with people and organizations to develop and manage projects to protect and improve the public's health and the environment in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region. Founded in 1993, CFPHE uses a multi-sector approach to systematically develop region-wide relationships and strategies that are imagined, implemented, tested and deployed through our partnerships with various public and private organizations, local collaborations and academic institutions. We invite you to learn more about these innovative partnerships and the work we do.

CFPHE’s line of business consists of three major programs: Administrative Partnership, Leadership Training and Community Engagement.

CFPHE is often chosen as a partner because our mission closely aligns with those of public and private public health initiatives, and CFPHE has experience working with communities.


CFPHE partners with public, private and nonprofit organizations and unincorporated organizations and collaborations to create meaningful public and environmental health projects for Colorado and throughout the Rocky Mountain Region.

Our Vision:

Everyone has the opportunity to be healthy and live in a healthy environment.

Our Mission:

The Colorado Foundation for Public Health and the Environment works with people and organizations to develop and manage projects to protect and improve the public's health and the environment in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain region.

Pipeline Award Program Office (PAPO) West: Patient Centered Outcomes and Research

Funding Source:

Patient Centered Outcomes and Research Institute (PCORI)

Description:

PCORI was authorized by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 as a non-profit, nongovernmental organization and is charged with helping patients, clinicians, purchasers, and policy makers make better-informed health decisions by “advancing the quality and relevance of evidence about how to prevent, diagnose, treat, monitor, and manage diseases, disorders, and other health conditions.”

PCORI’s Pipeline to Proposal Awards (also called Pipeline Awards), a progressive, three-tiered funding approach, aims to accelerate research proposal submission and dissemination and to develop a nationwide foundation of patients, stakeholders, and researchers equipped and eager to participate in patient-centered outcomes research.

Because PCORI has a limited headquarters workforce, the operational, programmatic, and fiscal duties associated with Tier I Pipeline Awards was awarded to CFPHE because of our significant research capacity building and award management experience (e.g., grant and contract award administration).
