The Energize Colorado Gap Fund is a combination program of grant funds and loan funds to helping Coloradans recover and rise from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Funds are for businesses whose business was impacted by the pandemic, have less than 25 full-time employees, and for non-profits whose mission or programs directly support economic development, tourism, or small businesses.
Preference will be given to those organizations that have not received any funding and are minority-owned, veteran, women-owned businesses.
Applications and awards will be done in rounds to provide assistance through December 2020. The process will not be first-come-first-serve; it will be a competitive process that will help those in need to receive priority access to assistance.
