As Covid-19 restrictions start to tighten again, it’s more important than ever that we come together to help one another get through these difficult times.
There are many resources currently available to businesses in our community. We put together a condensed list below. Check it out. ↓
1.The The Broomfield Chamber of Commerce and the Broomfield Community Foundation have come together to create a new relief and assistance fund designed to help local small businesses recover from the COVID-19 pandemic closures and restrictions. Applications are currently being accepted. Click HERE to access the application OR to make a donation in support of local businesses.
“Broomfield has long been a great place to start and grow your business. Our community is a strong supporter of small business and now many of them are at risk of permanently going out of business through no fault of their own,” Said Sam Taylor, President and CEO of the Broomfield Chamber. “This fund will offer a lifeline for those companies that need a little extra help as they reopen their companies after being shut down because of the pandemic.”
2. The Adams County Community & Economic Development Department Small Business Stabilization Program (SBSP) provides local businesses with grants to retain jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic. The grants for the SBSP are paid for by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to improve the physical, economic, and social conditions for low- to moderate-income populations.
