Energize Colorado Gap Fund
Round Two applications are open until October 19th
The Gap Fund
The Energize Colorado Gap Fund will provide more than $25M in small business loans and grants to boost small business enterprises that are the economic engines throughout the state. Sole proprietors, businesses and nonprofits with less than 25 full-time employees can apply for up to a $15,000 grant and a $20,000 loan for a possible combined total of $35,000 in financial assistance.
Applications and awards will be done in rounds to allow us to provide assistance through December 2020. Round two will close October 19, 2020. The process will not be first-come-first-serve, it will be a competitive process that will help those in need receive priority access to assistance.
