Greeley Area Recovery Fund is Still Active
Early on during the health and economic crisis, we collaborated with our partners from the Greeley Area Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Development Authority, and East Colorado Small Business Development Center to explore our best options for assisting our local businesses hardest hit by the pandemic. The city committed the first $250,000 to a recovery fund to provide emergency grants to businesses, based on simple qualifying criteria. The Greeley Area Recovery Fund
has now raised in excess of $600,000 and has to date, awarded dozens of grants to businesses totaling over $250,000. These grant funds can be used for marketing, payment of utilities, rent, payroll or other immediate business operating expenses. The top industries served to date have been restaurants, coffee shops and bars, retail and personal services. This relief will continue, even as businesses prepare to reopen in the days and weeks ahead.
