During the recent Colorado General Assembly Special Session, Senate Bill 20B-001 was passed establishing a Small Business Relief Program, valued at $37 million. As part of Adams County’s ongoing COVID-19 emergency response and recovery strategy, the county will be applying for, administering, and distributing a portion of these funds to the Adams County business community. Adams County will be administering the program on behalf of the entire county and all municipalities within the county.
The county’s Small Business Relief Program offers a one-time award in amounts of $3,500, $5,000, or $7,000 per business applicant based on company annual income. The application portal is now open, and applications will be accepted until noon on Wednesday, Feb. 3. Applicants will be notified of their awards around Thursday, Feb. 4, and money will be distributed the week of Monday, Feb. 8.
