The Colorado General Assembly gave the Colorado Auto Theft Prevention Authority (CATPA) the ability to award grants to multi-agency auto theft prevention, enforcement, investigative and prosecution programs for the purpose of reducing motor vehicle theft in Colorado. CATPA awards approximately $5.7 million each year, contingent upon insurance assessment collections and available funding within the CATPA Cash Fund. The CATPA Board is committed to awarding grants that will reduce automobile theft in Colorado. The Colorado Department of Public Safety through the Colorado State Patrol is responsible for management of the grant program.
