Are your employees having financial challenges?

The Larimer County Emergency Rent & Utility Assistance (ERAP) funds can help individuals stay in their homes by paying back rent and utilities, and more. Certain guidelines must be met to receive payments. We are partnering with Neighbor to Neighbor for this assistance program; apply online with Neighbor to Neighbor or call them at 970-829-0296. 

WorkLife Partnership’s Small Dollar Loans Program is an efficient, cost-effective, low-risk alternative to payroll advances and employee loan programs. WorkLife lent nearly $300,000 to borrowers last year, giving employers the opportunity to support their employees’ financial health.
