PEAK is the fast and easy way to access benefit information - anytime and anywhere. PEAK is an online service for Coloradans to screen themselves and apply for medical, food, and cash assistance programs.

Join us as we talk with Patrick Kelly from the Colorado PEAK Outreach Team, based in Boulder County, to learn more about this great tool and the role libraries play in getting people the assistance they need.

This webinar should run for about an hour and will be recorded for those that can't make it. Also, everyone as welcome as this webinar will be useful for all library staff, not just the BTOP Public COmputer Centers, so feel free to pass this on to colleagues that you think may be interested.

Local Public Awareness Funds Webinar

Last week we held a webinar to go over the plan for distributing public awareness money to Public Computer Centers. We discussed how to file for additional funds, how these funds can be used, etc. The recording of this webinar is now available here: Local Marketing Funds Webinar.

The information sheet and the link to the application for these funds can be found here under the Local Public Awareness Funds heading.

One question that came up during the webinar was whether match for marketing could count toward match for the grant as a whole, and it can. Also, if you spent some funds for marketing previous to November that you would like to be reimbursed for, that is allowable. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask Jamie or Susan.

A few things to keep in mind:

  • Applications are due on Sept 30th
  • Funding is $400 per PCC, but applications should be submitted by your library jurisdiction
  • Funding is to be used for marketing and signage purposes
  • Media Buying guides, original art files, and more resources can be found on the Public Awareness and Promotion page of this site.
  • Working with other organizations to gain match for your funds is highly encouraged, but not required

Looking forward to reading your applications and furthering the public awareness of this great project!
