In most ways, the pandemic had a significant impact on our daily lives. We’ve gotten used to carry-out only and businesses being closed due to staffing shortages, sometimes permanently. Signs on the doors of our local stores and restaurants show the hardships they’ve experienced.
But the impact on business that provide professional services was less obvious. Think accounting, marketing, legal services and the like. Dig Deep Research was one such example. Dig Deep helps local communities find and secure federal grant funding for water improvement projects. Their services help to keep fees and taxes lower for residents.
Dig Deep founder and CEO Tia Cavender, like many others, had to dip into personal savings and take out loans to stay afloat during the pandemic. She also got creative to streamline her business model and offer a new product to customers. Arapahoe Cares programs were there to help her pay rent, keep her doors open, and continue striving for a brighter future.
This is the final video in a three-part series about how Arapahoe County, through CARES Act funding, helped more than 1,000 local businesses.
The first video highlighted One Barrell American Bistro and Wine Bar in Englewood and the second featured the Clue Room in Centennial.
