Community Resource Links

  • The Resource Exchange

    TRE is a state designated Community Centered Board (CCB), one of 20 in Colorado. TRE services include eligibility determination, developmental disability determination, assistance with enrollment into Medicaid or State General Fund programs, service plan development, and arrangement for services, service coordination (case management), and monitoring of services received. 

    In 2019, TRE also assumed Single Point Entry (SEP) responsibilities and now administers all of Colorado’s Medicaid waivers for our service area. By bringing all waivers here, we believe we can achieve greater efficiencies and provide the level of quality for which we are known.
