San Miguel County program to assist financially impaired businesses due to Covid-19

Grant Program Description: The San Miguel County Commissioners understand the challenges our local businesses are facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The State of Colorado approved an allocation of Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding, enabling San Miguel County to establish a one-time grant program to help qualified County-based businesses severely disrupted by the pandemic. The goal of this program is to provide emergency support to for-profit and non-profit businesses that were not able to generate revenue or whose revenue was severely disrupted. The County is seeking to extend the life of businesses that had a proven pre-pandemic business model, but are in danger of closure due to the pandemic. We recognize that all businesses have been impacted by this global disruption, and we applaud the efforts of those who were able to adapt their business model to prevent severe impacts. Due to the limited funds of this program, our goal is to assist those businesses who had few or no opportunities to adapt under the State and Local Public Health Orders.

Due to the tight timelines that the County must adhere to in processing grants and seeking reimbursement from the State, incomplete applications will not be considered. Applicants should realize that there is a high likelihood of being audited for the funds they may receive. Any finds received will be considered taxable income. There is no guarantee of full or even partial granting of the funds requested.
