Colorado receives large investments from the federal government that not only help the state provide services that benefit all Coloradans, but also fuel economic growth and jobs across the state.

CFI provides timely analyses of how federal tax and budget decisions affect Colorado and provides the tools that local advocates need to make a difference at the federal level.
