Governor Jared Polis signed nine bills into law yesterday that will provide broad relief to those impacted by COVID-19. Monies will be distributed by local governments and may take a few weeks to be made available.
“We took immediate bipartisan action here in Colorado to provide relief to our small businesses, childcare providers, and hardworking families. We will all continue to face challenges in the weeks and months ahead and we urge Washington to step up and provide real relief to the people who need it most,” said Governor Jared Polis. “There is light at the end of the tunnel. I thank state lawmakers and legislative leadership for their collaboration and I’m proud we could come together to ensure we can build back stronger than before.”
