The CDPHE Order went into effect at 6:00 am on March 26, 2020 and is effective through April 26, 2020. That Order expressly provides that more restrictive provisions of orders issued by local authorities also apply. The Larimer County Public Health Director has issued a Stay-at-Home order for the County, which took effect at 5:00 pm on March 26, 2020, and continues until April 26, 2020.

You pay back the loan automatically with a percentage of your sales that you choose when you apply. The higher your sales, the faster you repay. On days without sales, you won’t pay a thing, but you need to repay a minimum of 5% or 10% every 90 days to keep your loan in good standing. You can also make manual payments and even pay the loan in full anytime with no early repayment fee.

  • Pen America Writers’ Emergency Fund

In response, PEN America will distribute grants of $500 to $1,000 based on applications that demonstrate an inability to meet an acute financial need, especially one resulting from the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.

    Applicants must be based in the United States, be a professional writer, and be able to demonstrate that this one-time grant will be meaningful in helping them to address an emergency situation.
