The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) has revealed the 2020 Rural Technical Assistance Program (RTAP) awardees. RTAP is a series of technical assistance initiatives designed to enhance rural economic development strategies across the state.
A team of industry experts, in partnership with OEDIT, determines the annual award recipients. Communities are evaluated on multiple community criteria.
The RTAP program was launched as a way to serve rural communities’ economic needs around the state and identify opportunities to leverage the state’s resources.
