This opportunity is only open to Colorado entities.

Any Colorado public school or person who owns, operates, or manages a public place, either enclosed indoor or outdoor area capable of holding one hundred people or more to which the public is invited or in which the public is permitted, but does not include a private residence is encourage to apply for the opportunity to receive an AED.

This opportunity is very competitive. Applications will be scored based on the quality of the application, how well need is stated, and financial need.
