Public Benefits and Services Resources Manual (2016)

Human Services
Health Care & Health Insurance
Children & Domestic Matters

The Public Benefits and Services Resource Manual is intended to serve as a reference guide for information on some of the state’s programs that provide direct benefits or services to members of the public. The manual is divided into four sections to make it easier for the reader to access information. The first section provides information on how to apply for certain public benefits using the Colorado PEAK website and county offices of human or social services. The second section provides snapshots of state programs that offer benefits and services to help meet Coloradans’ needs. The programs are grouped into the following categories: health care programs; housing and utilities assistance; food assistance; income assistance; employment assistance; educational assistance; child care assistance; and other programs.
