Town of Frederick Business Recovery Plan

Round 2 Grant Program: January 2, 2021 to March 31, 2021

The deadline to apply is Friday, March 19, 2021. 

Round 2 Grant Available Funding:  $95,000 total with a $20,000 max grant award per business. 

The Town of Frederick and Board of Trustees asked for and received feedback from local businesses to better understand the hardships and financial struggles impacting their livelihoods due to the pandemic and State of Colorado mandated restrictions. As elected officials and leaders, we know a healthy business community builds a vibrant community. We believe it is time to extend a lifeline to business owners needing help to recover, be viable in the long run and continue to call Frederick home.

On December 15, 2020, The Board of Trustees authorized the Frederick Business Recovery Plan, a grant program to support brick-and-mortar businesses in the Town of Frederick affected by the COVID-19 restrictions in 2020. The Town has allocated $200,000 in funds from the Oil Royalty Trust Fund as defined in Municipal Code Section 4-59. The Board of Trustees for the Town of Frederick designates the Frederick Oil Royalty Trust Fund to be used to support the Frederick High School Scholarship Program, community organization grants, economic development programs, and those governmental purposes as the Board may be designated from time to time. The Board further adopts a cap on annual disbursements from the fund to no more than four and one-half percent (4.5%) of the fund balance, as determined on December 31 of the prior year.
