Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) City Preparedness Update
The City & County of Denver is working with local, state, and federal partners to provide accurate information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) to the public. Help us spread facts, not fear.
A city-wide program that addresses the most immediate needs of the business community. The program prioritizes those industries who are most impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, such as the food industry, nail salons, barbershops, home childcare providers, and retail shops.
Providing up to a $7,500 in cash grants to our most vulnerable, this program is designed to assist eligible small businesses that may have had to temporarily close, have difficulty with paying their rent and utilities, or have had to lay off staff.
Please Note: This temporary relief program is intended to be available for a four (4) month period, subject to change. The program is being rolled out in monthly phases with a deadline to submit applications being the last day of the month from March through June.
This program is for business owners within the City & County of Denver only.
For questions about this program, email us at InvestInDenver@denvergov.org.
