A second round of the Weld County Business Recovery Program will be administered by Upstate Colorado Economic Development. Round 1 received 215 applications spanning several industries including restaurants, service providers, retail and more throughout the county. The grant continues to support eligible businesses who have demonstrated financial stress or disrupted operations as a result of the health crisis in Round 2.
Round 2 Highlights:
- Applications for Round 2 will be accepted October 15, 2020 through November 15, 2020. Applications must be submitted online at www.weldrecovery.com.
- The same review committee from Round 1, compromised of stakeholders throughout Weld County, will oversee the eligibility of applications. Grant funds will be distributed to eligible applications by December 15, 2020.
- Applicants who meet the eligibility requirements of Round 1 may apply for Round 2 if they have additional expenses or lost revenue not covered by Round 1 funding.
“The large applicant pool in the first round has shown us that most business have seen losses either with increased expenditures or with a loss of revenue from being closed. We hope more business understand that this fund is there for them as they continue to see the impacts of closures, supply chain interruption and most importantly the costs related to protecting employees and customers.”
– Rich Werner, Upstate Colorado Economic Development President
