As part of its COVID-19 emergency response and recovery strategy, Adams County, through its Community & Economic Development Department, is establishing the Small Business Stabilization Program to provide local businesses with grants up to $35,000, dependent on business needs, to retain jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The grants for the Small Business Stabilization Program are paid for by the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to improve the physical, economic, and social conditions for low- to moderate-income populations.

"Small businesses are the lifeblood of our community," said Commissioner Mary Hodge, champion of the Business Support Response & Recovery Team. "This program can help small business owners financially in their time of need, and those owners can then provide support to their employees until our economy is stabilized."

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, HUD provided CDBG grantees, including Adams County, guidance on infectious disease response and how to minimize community impact. County staff are working to reduce the negative impacts of the outbreak, and the Small Business Stabilization Program is the first plan to be realized.

According to HUD?s guidance, CDBG funds can be used to assist for-profit businesses to avoid job loss caused by closures related to social distancing. Funding can provide short-term working capital assistance to small businesses to enable retention of jobs and provide organizational stability.

Local businesses can apply for a small business grant beginning Monday, May 4, at noon. Applications will be open until 50 applications are received and will reopen if more funds are available. Applicants may call 720.523.6200 or email for more information.

Businesses must meet the following criteria:

  • The business must have 1-25 full-time employees (FTEs) and been operating as of Feb. 12, 2019.
  • The business must have a physical establishment and address within unincorporated Adams County; the cities of Northglenn, Brighton, or Federal Heights; or the Town of Bennett.
  • Businesses with more than one physical location may apply for the grant program for one location only.
  • The business must have experienced a loss of revenue due to Public Health Orders enacted for COVID-19.
  • The business owner must demonstrate how the grant will retain jobs — at least one full-time equivalent job (1,750 hours annually) or two permanent part-time jobs (at least 875 hours each annually) for individuals whose households earn 80% of the Area Median Income or less, as specified on the Small Business Stabilization Program website.
  • Applicants must be able to demonstrate they were unable to obtain federal Small Business Administration assistance or did not receive enough assistance.

Awards will be made on a first-come, first-served basis and in proportion to the contribution made from the contributing jurisdiction.

The award amount will be determined based on the demonstrated need, up to $35,000.

The Board of County Commissioners voted to amend the 2019 Annual Action Plan to establish the Small Business Stabilization Program at public hearing on Tuesday, April 21.

On 04/06/2020, Governor Polis granted further authority to the County Treasurers to waive interest on the first half real property tax payment (which was due 03/02/2020), so long as the taxpayer pays that first half on or before 04/30/2020. (A prior Executive Order granted authority to the Treasurer to waive interest through 04/20/2020). The language of the current Executive Order follows: here

Excerpt from Governor Polis' 04/06/2020 Order:

2. Replace Paragraph II.I (of the 03/21/2020 Executive Order) with the following:

I authorize the County Treasurers of the State of Colorado to take action to suspend or waive delinquent interest through April 30, 2020 that may accrue pursuant to the provisions of C.R.S. 39-10-104.5 as a result of delinquent tax payments. I further authorize county treasurers to accept multiple payments from any taxpayer ahead of payment deadlines and encourage any taxpayer to make second-installment payments ahead of the June 15 deadline established in C.R.S. 39-10-104.5(2). Any action by a Treasurer to waive delinquent interest shall be made with advance notice to any entity that imposes a mill levy within the county and shall be made available on the Treasurer?s website, electronic mail, or automated messages. This Executive Order does not authorize County Treasurers to waive delinquent interest pursuant to the provisions of C.R.S. 39-10-104.5 that accrues after April 30, 2020. (Emphasis in bold is added here by the Treasurer).

We are working. Many people have called assuming we are not working, because our building is closed. We are working, and all payments are being processed each day that we receive them from the USPS. Please pay with a check by mailing it (with your coupon, if possible), or click the 'I Have Read The Above Statement' link above to pay online, or you can drop it off at the building in our drop box or the ballot boxes listed on this site. We are working to keep Adams County operating smoothly through this pandemic. Thank you!
