Energy Impact Offset Fund Steering Committee

The Energy Impact Offset (EIOF) steering committee will play the important role of making informed decisions related to the management and disbursement of the Marijuana Energy Impact Offset Fund. The goal of this committee is to work collaboratively and make recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners on the best uses of the offset fund monies to make meaningful impacts across Boulder County. At the direction of the Commissioners, the committee will also help develop policy and action recommendations for making Boulder County marijuana cultivation facilities as energy productive as possible.


The Energy Impact Offset Fund (EIOF) Steering Committee will meet every other month on the second Wednesday.

Please ring the doorbell if you arrive after the meeting has started.
