DENVER, CO, UNITED STATES, June 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- In April, the Statewide Internet Portal Authority (SIPA) awarded more than $150,000 in grants to state and local governments across Colorado. Every year, SIPA provides the opportunity for Colorado governments to apply for the Micro-Grant program with a unique technology proposal. This year, over 30 separate entities were awarded their top-ask at the grant ceremony following SIPA’s 8th Annual User Conference in downtown Denver.

“SIPA is passionate about being able to give back to Colorado communities, every year,” said Jack Arrowsmith, SIPA’s Executive Director, “Especially when those communities come to us with exciting and innovative ideas for technology and services specifically to help and engage their residents.” Coming into the second week of June, many of these grant projects are in full swing of implementation, from new websites to online education to digitizing public data. If you would like to keep updated with some of these projects, subscribe to our newsletter, where we will have a monthly Micro-Grant check-in.

Since the Micro-Grant program’s inception, SIPA has awarded nearly a million dollars… apply for a grant next year and help us hit $1 million dollars of giving back to Colorado communities. Find more information at www.colorado.gov/pacific/sipa/micro-grant-program.
