Local Government Limited Gaming Impact Grant

The Local Government Limited Gaming Impact Program was created to provide financial assistance to local governments in addressing documented gaming impacts stemming from limited stakes gaming in the communities of Cripple Creek, Black Hawk and Central City. The Program is financed with a portion of state taxes on limited gaming activities in these municipalities.

  Apply and Manage Grant

Grant funds are provided to eligible local governments through a competitive application process to finance planning, construction and maintenance of public facilities and the provision of public services related to documented gaming impacts. Successful applicants must be able to quantify gaming impacts and to identify the public service and facility needs associated with those impacts.



The geographic eligibility area for the Program includes the counties of Gilpin and Teller as well as the eight counties contiguous to these two counties: Boulder, Clear Creek, Douglas, El Paso, Fremont, Grand, Jefferson, and Park. In addition, counties that contain tribal lands where limited stakes gaming occurs are also included within the geographic eligibility area. Tribal gaming counties include: Archuleta, La Plata, and Montezuma.

The types of local governments eligible to receive assistance include: counties, municipalities (with the exception of the three gaming cities: Black Hawk, Central City and Cripple Creek) and special districts that provide emergency services. In addition, eligible local governments may apply on behalf of private nonprofit agencies that are impacted by gaming.
