Denver (AP) The Colorado Energy Office is getting $9.6 million of the $42.6 million in federal stimulus money headed to Colorado to help reduce energy use and fossil fuel emissions, and to improve energy efficiency.

The money is from the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program.

Twenty cities and 10 counties in Colorado also are getting money from the program.

The Department said yesterday that the southern Ute Indian Tribe of the Southern Ute Reservation and the Ute Mountain Tribe of the Ute Mountain Reservation in the four corners area also will receive money.
