It's MICRO-GRANT time... well almost!

Get ready, this year's grant cycle opens in 9 days.

The Micro-Grant Program will open for applications starting November 1, 2019. This application is quick, easy, and will hopefully get you some extra cash for those projects you have been trying to start (or finish).

There are a few boxes that every grant requestor must check-off before applying. Here's what you need to know:

1- Every applicant entity MUST have an EGE Agreement on file, find out what that is here: sipa.colorado.gov/ege-agreement

2- Every applicant must complete the Micro-Grant application for each individual project looking for funding

3- The project(s) requested for MUST aim to put information and services online for residents of Colorado. At SIPA, we are very fond of eGovernment solutions, that's our job.

This year's criteria have changed a bit, get the details here: sipa.colorado.gov/micro-grant
