Applications open until April 16 for COVID-affected businesses
Arapahoe County is administering a Rent Rescue Grant Program to support our small and medium-sized businesses throughout our communities. If your business is behind on commercial lease payments or has closed its doors or dramatically limited operations due to Public Health Orders related to COVID-19, please review the eligibility requirements and apply today. The deadline to apply is April 16, 2021 at 5 p.m. Applications will be accepted until then, or until grant funding has been exhausted.
Qualifying businesses must have operated a physical location in Arapahoe County since December 30, 2019, have 500 or fewer employees, be in good standing with regulatory agencies, meet minimum financial requirements and have at least one employee.
Approved businesses will have direct payments made to the Owner/Landlord. Extraordinary circumstances will be considered for those businesses that used personal savings or assets to pay rent or mortgage (e.g., selling personal life insurance policy, acquiring loans from 401K, 2nd mortgage on personal property, etc.). These funds may NOT be used for any expense other than commercial rent or mortgage costs, or for payment of debt in excess of a minimum payment in an underlying debt instrument.
All applications must be complete and correct when submitted. Due to the time constraints placed on this program, the County will not be responsible for following up on any inaccuracies or missing information from an application. Please read through all requirements thoroughly before submitting an application. Please do not start an application until you have obtained all evidence and documentation to fulfill the list below.
