Greeley Area Recovery Fund Application

When the impacts to the local and national economy ran deep from the COVID-19 pandemic, this fund was set up to support Greeley Area businesses to provide immediate relief to bridge the gap during the first critical weeks while businesses were waiting to apply for funding that would be made available from federal, state and other private sources. They needed to retain workers, keep their operation solvent and stay open. The Greeley Area Chamber of Commerce partnered with the City of Greeley, the City of Evans, and Upstate Colorado Economic Development to create the Greeley Area Business Recovery Fund and provided over 140 grants between April and August.

As of August 27, 2020, we are redirecting Greeley Area businesses to apply to the next available fund provided by the Weld County Business Recovery Program.

Greeley Area Recovery Fund Application

At this time, when the impacts to the local and national economy run deep from the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to support your business as you are struggling to retain workers, keep your operation solvent and move your organization forward.

Congress has passed the CARES ACT to create some immediate and short-term financial relief in response to those most impacted by this unprecedented event. The Greeley Area Chamber of Commerce seeks to provide more immediate relief to compliment that which will be given from Federal sources.

This relief can help to stem the gap as businesses are operating with critical weeks and days before their operation is changed forever. The Greeley Area Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the City of Greeley, the City of Evans, and Upstate Colorado Economic Development to create the Greeley Area Business Recovery Fund. Our goal; a short term grant program to assist local businesses hardest hit during the current crisis and offer immediate relief.
