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 2020 (for tax year 2019), 53 of Colorado’s 64 counties received $450,913 in Impact Assistance Grants, based on 428,810 acres which Colorado Parks and Wildlife purchased. Since 1979, this program has provided more than $8 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.
The application deadline for tax year 2019 has passed. County Assessors will be notified in mid-January 2021 when the Impact Assistance Grant application process for tax year 2020 is to begin.
