In 2018 the Building Excellent Schools Today grant program celebrated 10 years of serving Colorado schools!
Since 2008 BEST has awarded approximately $3 billion in grants to more than 600 Colorado schools, improving health, safety and security for over 400,000 students.
With funding from The Colorado State Land Board, Colorado Lottery, marijuana excise tax, and local matching dollars, BEST continues to improve Colorado's educational environments through capital construction projects helping schools to realize CDE's vision that "All students graduate ready for college and careers, and are prepared to be productive citizens of Colorado."
