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.
