In Colorado, profits from the sale of lottery products are distributed to Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO), the Conservation Trust Fund (CTF), and Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW). Coloradans have long known that their investment in these programs is a valuable component of healthy communities, but this value has never before been quantified. This report by The Trust for Public Land demonstrates the extensive and varied economic gains provided by these investments.
