Public Assistance Applicant Briefings Scheduled for Adams, Weld, Morgan and Logan Counties

The Colorado Office of Emergency Management is working to identify private non-profit organizations that offer services to the general public and local governments that may be eligible for disaster aid as a result of the Presidential disaster declarations for the Colorado floods and mudslides.

Private non-profit organizations and local governments in the ten declared counties that suffered damage or incurred costs of at least $1,000 as a direct result of the Colorado flooding are encouraged to attend the Public Assistance Applicant Briefing to learn more about the eligibility and applicant process. The ten counties currently included in the Major Disaster Declaration include: Adams, Boulder, Clear Creek, El Paso, Jefferson, Larimer, Logan, Morgan, Washington and Weld.

This meeting is not for individuals, homeowners associations (HOA), or private businesses. Individuals and private businesses looking for assistance should visit a local Disaster Recovery Center/ Business Recovery Center to obtain information on the Individual Assistance and Small Business Adminstration programs.
