It depends on which program you are applying for. If you are applying for multiple programs, you will receive different response rates for each program of your application. If all required documentation is provided and sufficient, Unmet Needs and the Housing Support program will most likely take 1-3 weeks. Fundings typically take place the same month of application. The Boulder County Tax Rebate and Wind and Wildfire Mitigation Grants have been recently recovering from a backlog, and now in February of 2024, we are estimating that from new application, they are currently taking 2-4 weeks when all required documentation is provided and sufficient.

For the State of Colorado Housing Recovery Program and Community Foundation of Boulder County Rebuild Grant program, we have experienced an extremely high volume of applications over the last several months. These programs are often taking a few months to process and underwrite. In 2024, we have added additional staff to both of these programs, and the team is working tirelessly to process applications and distribute awards as quick as possible. Thank you very much for your patience.

The Colorado Energy Office’s Electrification Rebate is also working through a large list of applications, and the approval to disbursed funds process is currently taking a few months.

If you ever have any questions about where your applications are at in the process, you can email the program emails directly for the specific program you are interested in OR you can submit the contact form on the Impact Development Fund website, and we will get back to you with a report on the status of all your applications.
