As part of pandemic recovery efforts, the City of Fort Collins is launching the Small Business Grants program to help our local small business community address impacts of the COVID-19 health crisis.

Eligible small businesses include those with less than 50 employees who make less than $500K in revenue a year, along with solopreneurs, artists, and musicians who had challenges that were attributed to or aggravated by the Covid-19 public health crisis.

Examples of continuing challenges to businesses include:

  • reduced revenue from ongoing spikes in COVID cases
  • increased expenses from supply chain issues
  • increased salary and hiring costs
  • and other increases in operating expenses.

Small Businesses Grants are available to help with three recovery goal areas:

  • Stabilization
  • Technical Assistance
  • Workforce & Talent Acquisition

Applicants may request up to $10,000 in TOTAL funding within the goal areas.

There will be two rounds of grants:
Round 1: Opens August 1  and closes August 30, 2022
Round 2: Opens October 3 and closes October 31, 2022
