Colorado Main Street has a tiered system for local programs to progress through as they achieve greater levels of self-sufficiency and success. Please see the Colorado Main Street Program Manual for more information on the prerequisites, requirements and available services for each tier.
The new Affiliate tier gets limited services from DOLA but it is a great way to connect to the Main Street network and/or begin the process of becoming a Candidate. Communities may remain an Affiliate as long as they desire.
The Affiliate application can be found here.
Please contact DOLA Colorado Main Street staff if your community is considering applying to the program. Staff may work with your community to help explore the program and help you decide if it is right for your community. To apply for Candidacy, you must submit a completed application, including the requested attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before July 1 of each year.
The application for Candidacy can be found here.
