DENVER — The State of Colorado announced additional enhancements to the myColoradoTM mobile app to help Coloradans stay current on COVID-19 information and access food, cash, medical, and early childhood assistance on the Colorado PEAK® website. Other new features include the ability to display vehicle registrations in the app and chat with myColorado support staff. Download myColorado from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
“The pandemic has brought uncertainty and changes to Coloradans and their families,” said OIT Chief Information Officer and Executive Director Theresa Szczurek, Ph.D. “All Coloradans can view COVID-19 information in one place and residents who are facing hardship can use the myColorado mobile app to access benefits on Colorado PEAK.”
A new menu of COVID-19 helpful links to state and national resources is now available on the myColorado home screen, and can be accessed without logging in or creating an account. Among the many COVID-19 resources in the latest release are access to the School Free Lunch Sites Map, United Way 2-1-1, Do You Have Symptoms?, Colorado Mask Project, and Help Colorado Now. Coloradans can also sign up to receive helpful COVID-19 text and email alerts within the myColorado app.
On October 30, 2019, Governor Polis announced the Colorado Digital IDTM, which is available to all Coloradans with a current driver license or state ID. Now vehicle owners can set up and access vehicle registration receipts in the app Wallet, along with their Digital ID. The state will continue to add services and features to enhance Colorado’s digital government experience and send helpful push notifications with important COVID-19 information.
Lastly, the new myColorado chat function makes it easy for Coloradans to get real-time support for any app-related questions such as how to set up an account. The myColorado support team is available to chat Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MST.
Residents are encouraged to download myColorado via the Apple App Store or Google Play and take advantage of the state’s many online services from the comfort of their home to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
