Agriculture Business Grant

Agriculture

This grant program is intended to assist agricultural businesses. Based on documented damages, farmers can receive grant assistance to help them to stay in business and retain employment in the impacted areas. This program is being run in partnership with the Colorado Department of Agriculture.

This is an economic development grant to help businesses be sustainable, stay operational by retaining jobs, or increase business operations by creating jobs. Grants range from $15,000 to $150,000 and funds can be used to reimburse applicants for disaster-related expenses that were incurred within a year of the disaster, operating expenses to help the business moving forward, purchase of equipment or materials needed for the business, or for disaster-related projects that are still needed such as repair or replacement of fences/corrals, irrigation system/ponds, outbuildings; debris removal; land leveling; pasture restoration.

 

Round 1 & 2 - Closed


Staff are currently working with those eligible applicants who applied under Rounds 1 & 2 to reimburse them for disaster-related expenses and/or for future operating expenses.  Please see the guidelines for more information.
