Small Business Federal Loans and Grants
As you consider applying for the different federal funding sources available for Colorado businesses, the following information can help you make the best choices for your situation:
1) Federal funds carry program-specific restrictions and it’s important to know and protect your options. Review each program thoroughly. Your approval and acceptance of a loan from one federal program may cause you to be fully or partially ineligible for other sources of federal funding.
2) Different federal funding such as loans and grants from multiple agencies will roll out at different times, so it’s important to consider the timing of the funding source.
3) Federal economic disaster recovery loans are accessible right now for qualified businesses; however, no federal economic disaster recovery grants have been announced. Unfortunately, for businesses seeking immediate help, there is no way to predict which future federal tools – including grants – may be employed as COVID continues to impact the US economy. This can place businesses in the challenging position of weighing an immediate federal tool against the possibility of future programs that may or may not be offered, with requirements yet to be determined.
We are committed to sharing news of all new economic recovery resources (both state and federal) as they become available and are here to be your guide through this challenging time.
