The bill establishes the office of gun violence prevention (office)
within the department of public health and environment to coordinate and
promote effective efforts to reduce gun violence. The office is required
to conduct public awareness campaigns to educate the general public
about state and federal laws and existing resources relating to gun

violence prevention. Subject to available money, the office may establish
and administer a grant program to award grants to organizations to
conduct community-based gun violence intervention initiatives that are
primarily focused on interrupting cycles of gun violence, trauma, and
retaliation that are evidence-informed and have demonstrated promise at
reducing gun violence without contributing to mass incarceration.
The office is required to create and maintain a resource bank as a
repository for data, research, and statistical information regarding gun
violence in Colorado. The office must collaborate with researchers to
improve data collection in Colorado and use existing available research
to enhance evidence-based gun violence prevention tools and resources
available to Colorado communities.
