HDGP Evaluation FY19-21
Funder: Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment
Timeframe: 2018 – 2021
Purpose: The Office of Health Equity’s (OHE) Health Disparities Grant Program (HDGP) is providing support to agencies across Colorado to address these upstream determinants of health (e.g., housing, education) with the goal of improving downstream health outcomes (e.g., access to care, decreased chronic disease rates). Grantees are focusing on changing systems and policies that impact the upstream determinants of health. The goal of the evaluation is to design and implement a utilization-focused evaluation to assess the impact of the initiative on systems and policies, equitable access to resources and health disparities. The main outcomes of the evaluation are documenting shifts in the availability, accessibility and acceptability of social and economic resources.
