Applying for public assistance programs does not require a visit to the Prowers County Annex. The Colorado Program Eligibility and Application Kit (PEAK) at https://coloradopeak.secure.force.com/ has everything you need to:

  • Learn about public assistance programs
  • Complete an application
  • Manage benefits

 PEAK is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via internet access on a smartphone, tablet, or computer.  PEAK is safe and secure, which means your personal information is protected.  You may also Google “Colorado PEAK” to reach this site.
