In partnership with local governments, Larimer County is offering one-time COVID-19 relief funds for small businesses that have been financially impacted by pandemic-related public health orders.

Businesses must have experienced at least a 20% revenue reduction and include restaurants, bars, breweries, wineries, distilleries, fitness clubs, sports centers, caterers and movie theaters.

Fort Collins, Loveland and Estes Park are serving as business hubs for the program to ensure county-wide access.

Businesses are encouraged to work with the hub closest to them.

Businesses with 2019 revenue less than $500,000 can receive up to $3,500 from the fund.

If revenue was between $500,000 and $2.5 million they can receive up to $5,000 and if it was more than $2.5 million they can receive up to $7,000.

Applications for the fund opened Wednesday and will close Jan. 27.

Applications are available in English and Spanish at larimer.org/sbr. More information can be found online or by contacting Dena Jardine at djardine@larimer.org or 970-498-6623.
