Weld County and participating communities provided funding for this local program to support businesses that demonstrate financial stress or disrupted operations due to the public health crisis.
Our goal is to provide assistance to businesses that are trying to reopen and/or modify their business plans or facilities to serve customers in a safe way.
All applications must be submitted online. No applications will be accepted via hard-copy, in-person or via email.
The business must demonstrate financial stress or disrupted operations, which may include but are not limited to the following:
Allocated assistance may not duplicate needs funded by other programs or grants received by the business/nonprofit. Grant funds will be provided on a reimbursement basis with appropriate documentation. Businesses that applied for previous local Economic Relief Loans and/or Grant Programs or applied for federal assistance may apply for this program.
However, grant funding for this program may not duplicate needs funded by other programs or grants received by the business/nonprofit. Applicants must acknowledge in the application all other funding received and how that funding is being used. Consideration of award amounts will be made in support of the geographic contributions made from individual jurisdictions.
Application reviewers will determine eligibility and grant amount. Awards will depend upon the number of applicants, availability of funds, and demonstrated need. Once funding decisions are made, applicants will receive a Grant Award notification which will outline all terms and conditions of receiving the grant. The program reserves the right to offer awards different from the specified amount requested.
