Small Business Grant Opportunity
Boulder County Small Business COVID-19 Grant applications are due this Friday, Jan. 29 at 5 p.m. This grant program was created by legislation we passed last month in the Special Session. Eligible businesses include: restaurants, bars, caterers, movie theaters, gyms, and recreation centers. Access the online application here.
- Good news: Boulder County’s five day average of new COVID-19 cases is decreasing, and it’s safe to say we’re beyond the point where we would have seen a holiday spike in infections. Let’s continue our progress by wearing masks and staying social distanced.
- Vaccines remain in limited supply, but the distribution system is steadily improving and the number of doses administered is increasing every day. Boulder County residents can find information about receiving their vaccine here. Statewide vaccine information can be found here.
- The state has launched a hotline to help Coloradans get answers to questions about COVID-19 and vaccinations. The toll-free number is: 1-877-268-2926.
- There are a number of different resources available to support small businesses, nonprofits, freelancers, and independent contractors. Find information about all of those opportunities here.
The legislature will be back in session in a few weeks and I’ve been busy working on my legislation and honing the Democrats’ legislative agenda for 2021. If you’ve got ideas on what the legislature can do to get Colorado back on its feet and build back stronger, please reach out! I’m eager to get back to our regularly scheduled, in person work. Stay tuned for more updates, and stay safe in the meantime.
