The Longmont Downtown Development Authority is offering Safe Reopening Business Grants to locally owned and operated businesses within LDDA boundaries.
The goal is to provide "near-term financial relief" for storefront businesses most impacted by COVID-19, with the priority for businesses that have frequent and/or close contact with customers, according to a news release.
Funding of up to $3,500 can be used to offset expenses of reopening business practices required by coronavirus mandates. Assistance will be given via reimbursement of eligible expenses directly related to reopening/continuing business while following local, state, and federal regulations related to COVID-19 public safety standards.
LDDA staff will review applications for thoroughness and may follow up with any clarifying questions.
Eligible safety supplies can be purchased ahead of time and will be reimbursed upon grant approval. All reimbursements will need proof of purchase (receipts) for eligible items.
