JPMorgan Chase Foundation a new, key partner in CCLP’s efforts to reduce poverty

The Colorado Center on Law and Policy’s poverty-reduction efforts got a big boost over the summer with a $30,000 gift from the JPMorgan Chase Foundation. The grant will support CCLP’s Family Economic Security Program, and in particular our leadership of the Colorado Legislature’s Economic Opportunity Poverty Reduction Task Force. The task force facilitates the integration of services between public and nonprofit sectors, coordinates efforts to reduce poverty and identifies best practices for promoting economic opportunity. Task force members are creating a strategic plan to reduce poverty by half in Colorado by 2019.

Details about the Economic Opportunity Poverty Reduction Task Force are on the task force’s blog, called 2019. To learn more about the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, and grants made in Colorado and around the world, visit or e-mail
