Implemented in 2004, PEAK is Colorado’s online screener for TANF/SNAP/Medicaid and other programs in CO. The Colorado Benefit Management System is the eligibility system rules engine that supports it, replacing the legacy mainframe system. PEAK will soon incorporate an online application; planning for this component began in 2009. Along with the online application, CBOs will also soon begin conducting outreach and application assistance using PEAK. Clients will be able to use the online system to check the status of their benefits. The effort leverages concepts from PA Compass, developed for PA Department of Public Welfare in consultation with Deloitte.
