Rural Technical Assistance Program (RTAP)

Rural Technical Assistance Program (RTAP), formerly Colorado Blueprint 2.0, is a series of technical assistance initiatives offered by the Colorado Office of Economic Development to enhance rural economic development strategies across the state. The program leverages state partnerships and specialized resources to address the unique economic development goals of rural Colorado. This community-driven effort turns regional feedback on local economic needs into a catalyst for economic growth.
