Program background

The Community Access Enterprise (CAE), in partnership with the Colorado Energy Office (CEO), is soliciting applications for grant funding to support community-led mobility programs that meet unique community needs and include an electric mobility component(s). Electric mobility refers to any type of transportation that relies partially or completely on electricity to power it.

The Community Accelerated Mobility Project (CAMP) will offer two phases of grant funding: Phase 1 technical readiness planning grants; and Phase 2 implementation grants. 

The application information on this webpage is for Phase 1 grants only. CEO expects to open another round for CAMP Phase 1 applications and an initial round for CAMP Phase 2 grant applications in early 2024. More information will be available in the coming months. CEO anticipates ongoing, annual funding for both Phase 1 and Phase 2 CAMP grants beyond 2024.

Program Eligibility (Phase 1)

Local, county, and Tribal governments; community-based organizations; and nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply for CAMP grant funding. CEO allows and encourages partnerships with other entities. Technical Readiness Plans should reflect the needs of the community by establishing a shared vision for community mobility.

Note: A Phase 1 application is not required to apply for Phase 2 funding. A Phase 1 award also does not guarantee a Phase 2 award.
