The Colorado Program Eligibility and Application Kit allows applicants to electronically submit applications to County offices and report any necessary changes to their cases. A user can also use the site to check eligibility for various government assistance programs and the status of current benefits.

Colorado PEAK provides applicants with the ability to perform all of the necessary tasks for benefits individually without requiring assistance from a government employee. Care providers and government organizations are also able to use the web portal to apply and monitor benefits on behalf of individuals. PEAK increases the State of Colorado's capacity for customer service and accountability for public assistance. Some of the programs administered through PEAK include the Affordable Care Act, Medicare and Medicaid, American Indian/Alaska Native benefits, Connect for Health Colorado Marketplace and the Colorado Indigent Care Program.

The State of Colorado also provides in-person assistance for individuals who are less comfortable with using the web portal. Interested parties find locations by visiting the state's official website, Colorado.gov.
