Many in our community needed a lifeline to help them weather the effects of the COVID pandemic. That lifeline was made possible by American Rescue Plan Act [ARPA] Immediate Needs Grants [ING] funding which Larimer County received and distributed to our community to help get through and support the post-COVID recovery in many ways.

Over $31 Million in Immediate Needs Grant funding was distributed to small businesses and non-profits
that fall into three categories:
-Health Impacts recovery, $673,000.
-Economic impact recovery, $2.26 million.
-Improvements to help prevent future pandemics, $167,500.

The pandemic affected our community in many ways including food insecurity, housing, childcare, public health, and small businesses. The ING grants have served as a bridge to recovery in these areas and much more.
