    Colorado State Office of Rural Health


    Senate Bill 34 created the Emergency Medical Trauma System (EMTS) grant program in 1989. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) administers the EMTS Provider Grant program, and the Colorado Rural Health Center (CRHC) manages the education and training portion, known as CREATE (Colorado Resource for Emergency and Trauma Education). Applications for CREATE must be submitted through the Colorado Rural Health Center, separately from applications to the EMTS Provider Grant program, which are submitted to CDPHE.

    CREATE assists public and private organizations in improving and expanding the emergency medical and trauma system in Colorado. This grant is intended to provide funding for education and training for emergency medical and trauma services. Applicants must have as their purpose the provision of emergency medical and trauma services in Colorado to be eligible. Students must be or intend to be emergency medical and trauma providers in Colorado.

    History of Funding
