How to Apply and Eligibility

How to Apply and Eligibility
There are a number of ways to access the benefits you may need. We have provided these links to help guide you to services as easily as possible. Your local county office will be able to provide a complete assessment of your needs. To find the location of your local county office, visit www.colorado.gov/cdhs/services-by-county. 

To Screen for Potential Eligibility
Not sure if you want to apply for benefits? The Am I Eligible tool on the PEAK website is a tool that can help you see which benefits you might be eligible to receive. To see if you might be eligible for benefits, visit www.Colorado.gov/PEAK and click on the Am I Eligible button. Please note, this tool is not an application, and there are additional benefits you may be eligible to receive that the PEAK website does not screen for. Your local county office will be able to assist you with these additional programs. Click here to find contact information for your local county office.
