Applications and awards will be done in rounds to allow Energize Colorado to provide assistance through December. The process will not be on a first-come basis. It will be a competitive process that will help those in need to receive priority access to assistance.

Applicants must be able to show the economic hardship their business is facing due to COVID-19.

Energize Colorado accepts a variety of documentation that demonstrates an impact. Documents include bank records, point of sale receipts, profit and loss statements, tax filings, and expense reports. Energize Colorado will provide a mentoring program to assist in completing the application.
