About the Program

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is committed to being a good neighbor in the communities where we own land in fee title for the benefit of wildlife and sportspeople. Each county in which we own land is eligible to receive an Impact Assistance Grant (IAG), which is based on the agricultural tax rate.

​In 2022 (for tax year 2021), 54 of Colorado’s 64 counties received more than $494,000 in Impact Assistance Grants, based on approximately 450,000 acres owned by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Since 1979, this program has provided more than $9 million in impact assistance.

CPW strives to make the process of applying for Impact Assistance Grants as simple as possible. In January of each year, we send a notice to all county assessors in which Colorado Parks and Wildlife owns fee title land, advising them that their counties are eligible for impact assistance from us. When the process is open, this page contains instructions on how to apply for the Impact Assistance Grant.

Application Period 

County Assessors will be notified in mid-January when the next Impact Assistance Grant application process is to begin.
