Business Recovery Program

The Town of Erie, and participating communities, provided Federal CARES Fund dollars for this local program to support businesses that demonstrate financial stress or disrupted operations due to the public health crisis. The goal is to provide assistance to businesses that are trying to reopen and/or modify their business plans or facilities to serve customers in a safe way. Upstate Colorado, on behalf of the Town of Erie, is administering the Business Recovery Program through the Weld County websites (Boulder businesses in Erie are eligible).

Minimum Qualifications

The business must demonstrate financial stress or disrupted operations, which may include but are not limited to increased costs related to COVID-19 prevention measures and notice of disrupted supply network leading to shortage of critical inventory or materials.

  • Be established prior to February 1, 2020
  • Have 500 or fewer employees (full time and part time combined)
