This data represents annual funding allocations through The City of Boulder's Health Equity Fund (HEF). The HEF provides funding to community organizations and agencies promoting health equity for Boulder residents. Funding is awarded through an annual competitive process based on alignment with the intent and language of the Sugar-Sweetened Beverage Product Distribution Tax, a ballot measure which was approved in November 2016.

The HEF aims to reduce disparities and to improve health equity among our at-risk population. Examples of HEF-supported programs include those that prevent diseases (e.g. obesity, diabetes, heart disease, oral diseases) linked to consumption of sugary beverages; increase access to healthy food and clean water; expand health services and wellness programs; and more. To learn more about the HEF, to apply for future fund rounds or to apply to serve on the Health Equity Advisory Committee, please visit:
