Grants available for small businesses impacted by the Marshall Fire

Boulder County and the State of Colorado are partnering with Colorado Enterprise Fund to offer grant funding for for-profit small businesses impacted by the Marshall Fire and Straight-Line Wind event.

The Marshall Fire Small Business Grants Program will provide a total of $1 million in grants through this one-time competitive grant program. The maximum grant amount per business is $20,000.

The grants are intended to help eligible small businesses that have incurred economic loss or increased business expenses due to the Marshall Fire by providing support toward the retention and/or creation of low- and middle-income full-time jobs in the impacted area.

Applications will be open until Friday, April 28, at 5 p.m. Grant awards are scheduled to be announced the week of May 22, 2023, and distributed the week of May 29, 2023.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer this grant program to our local businesses impacted by the Marshall Fire,” said Boulder County’s Assistant County Administrator Yvette Bowden. “They have suffered tremendous loss and are still recovering 16 months after the fire. We hope this grant can provide some relief.”

“As a nonprofit, small business lender, CEF is pleased to partner with Boulder County for this grant program supporting small businesses affected by the Marshall Fire,” added Nim Patel, CEF Chief Strategy Officer.

To be considered, applicants must be for-profit small businesses in the Marshall Fire and Wind Event qualifying area.
