BROOMFIELD, Colo. — Colorado’s Conservation Districts have 15 days to opt in for Coronavirus Relief Funding (CVRF), beginning May 29th, through the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA).
As part of the federal CARES Act outlined under Title V, CVRF allows local governments to receive reimbursements for necessary expenditures that were not accounted for in the most recent local government budget and that were incurred as of March 1st due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. Up to $275 million will be allocated to local governments across Colorado.
Applicants are required to supply affirmations of spending, reporting, monitoring, and other federal situations. Counties and municipalities are encouraged to collaborate on funding requests. To opt in for CVRF funding, districts must complete an application on DOLA’s website.
Please contact Nikki Brinson, Colorado State Conservation Board District Operations Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-842-3108 with questions.
