Community Crime Prevention Initiative (CCPI)

This initiative reinvests parole reform dollars in north Aurora, southeast Colorado Springs, Grand Junction and Trinidad for a pilot program to support economic development and community services through community loan and grant programs.


The initiative funds programs, projects, and/or direct services aimed at reducing crime in the target pilot neighborhoods through:

  • Small Business Loans: made available through non-depository Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) that serve the target communities. 
  • Grants: to local governments, nonprofits or schools, made available through community foundations and/or a third-party administrator that serve the target neighborhoods.
    • North Aurora - $1.5M
    • Southeast Colorado Springs - $1.5M
    • Grand Junction - $682,152.80
    • Trinidad - $341,076.40
  • Statewide Grants: to eligible entities to establish business and entrepreneurship training programs for justice-system-involved persons Statewide.

In the 2021 legislative session, the original programs within the initiative were extended until sunset, September 1, 2027. All expansion programs will repeal effective September 1, 2023.
