Creative District Program

A division of the Colorado Office of Economic Development, Colorado Creative Industries (CCI) is proud to administer the Colorado Creative District Program. The Creative District enabling legislation passed in 2011 (HB11-1031) and in 2013 (HB13-1208) offers vetted districts access to grant funding, tailored technical assistance, networking and training programs and access to advocacy tools. The Boettcher Foundation is a partner of the CCI in establishing the Colorado Creative Districts Program. Since July of 2012, CCI has supported the development of Creative Districts across the state to: • Create hubs and clusters of economic activity • Promote a community’s unique identity • Enhance areas as appealing places to live, conduct business and attract visitors
