Governor Polis, COVID Relief Fund Announce Fifth Round of Grants

DENVER – Gov. Polis and the Colorado COVID Relief Fund today announced the fifth round of grants awarded to organizations working with Coloradans impacted by COVID-19.

“We’re proud to continue supporting Coloradans and organizations who are focused on helping those who have been impacted by COVID-19,” said Governor Jared Polis. “Coloradans have done a great job of slowing the spread of the virus by wearing masks, washing their hands and staying home as much as possible, but the virus is still very much part of our communities. Coloradans have never shied away from a challenge, and I’m proud of the way so many people have stepped up during this challenging time to help others.”

In the fifth round, the COVID Relief Fund awarded $938,625 in Impact to 50 grantees and $1,323,922 in Recovery to 65 grantees for a total of $2,262,547 to 115 grantees. The Relief Fund has distributed $16.3 million to 765 grantees through five rounds.
