Gap Fund Partners
The Energize Colorado Gap Fund is led by a spirited team of Colorado innovators. Spanning the public, private, and philanthropic sectors, they represent the diversity of Colorado’s economy. Together with our Gap Fund Partners, we are working to ensure struggling small businesses have access to the additional capital needed to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn.
Thus far, the Gap Fund has awarded more than $26 million in grants and loans for sole proprietorships, small businesses, and non-profits across Colorado. Businesses can apply for up to a total of $35,000 in financial assistance. The funds will be distributed via an existing network of Community Development Financial Institutions, Regional Business Loan Funds, and non-profit lenders.
