Rural Jump-Start Program


“The Rural Jump-Start Program is a collaborative effort by the state, local governments, Institutes of Higher Education (IHE), and economic development organizations (EDO) to incentivize new businesses to start in or move to rural, economically distressed counties in Colorado, which are referred to as Rural Jump-Start zones, and hire new employees.

Rural Jump-Start began in 2016 as a tax incentive program, and in 2021 a grant program was created, for businesses located in a Rural Jump-Start zone. To be eligible, businesses cannot be operating in the State of Colorado at the time of application and cannot compete with similar businesses in the county where they are locating or an adjacent economically distressed county. If you are a business interested in participating in this program, please review all program qualifications, discussed in greater detail under the Business Eligibility section below, before applying.

Tax benefits include relief from:

State income tax for the new business;
State sales and use tax for the new business;
County personal property tax for the new business;
Municipal personal property tax for the new business (in participating municipalities); and
State income tax for qualified New Hires.

Grant benefits are dependent on the business’ location:

If a business is located in a Rural-Jump Start zone, businesses can receive a matching grant of up to $20,000 as a newly established business and up to $2,500 per New Hire.
If a business is located in a Rural-Jump Start zone that is also a Tier 1 Just Transition community, businesses can receive a matching grant of up to $40,000 as a newly established business and up to $5,000 per New Hire.

The Rural Jump-Start Program will accept applications for the tax benefits through December 31, 2025 and for the grant benefits through June 30, 2024.”
