To meet the income-qualified requirement, your household income needs to be below 60% of the state of Colorado’s median income, or below 200% of the relevant federal poverty level, or below 80% of area median income.

To qualify for the adaptive e-bike rebate program, you must have a disabling condition that significantly impairs your ability to ride a standard e-bike. Examples of such conditions include a person who uses a wheelchair, walker or crutches, relies on oxygen, has conditions impacting the ability to balance while standing, walking, or riding a bike, or in some other way is unable to use and enjoy a standard e-bike.
The applicant must meet one of the above criteria and have a Professional* verify in writing that they require an adaptive e-bike.
When to apply:
Due to the unique nature of adaptive participants needs, the adaptive rebate can be applied for at any time and does not need to happen during the standard e-bike rebate release period.
E-bikes are expensive and adaptive e-bikes tend to be even more expensive, typically ranging in price from $4,000 - $10,000. Due to the increased cost of adaptive e-bikes, we have increased the rebate for adaptive e-bikes to $1,400. Unfortunately, even with the increased rebate for the adaptive e-bikes, you should expect to have potentially high out of pocket costs. If you have a disability but are still able to ride an e-bike, we recommend that you proceed through the standard rebate process.
If you don’t know which bike may best suit your needs, many local e-bike shops carry a variety of bike models, ranging from two-wheeled e-bikes, to e-trikes, to e-cargo bikes. These e-bikes are typically less expensive than an adaptive e-bike and may meet your needs. You can select from any shop on this list. We have two retailers that sell adaptive specific bikes, and the majority will have other options depending upon your needs.
How do I apply:
If you qualify for an adaptive rebate, please email your proof of residency and your professional’s letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
