We are excited to announce the launch of our new Technical Assistance Mini Grant Program! The Community Development & Neighborhood Services Department is awarding mini grants to small businesses and non-profits located in Fort Collins with 20 or fewer employees going through the Building or Development Review process to provide them with technical assistance. This funding is from the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and is intended to help support our local business and non-profit community recovery from the effects of COVID-19.
Each approved business can receive a maximum of $1,000 to $2,000 (depending on project type) for qualifying services. Mini grant funding may be spent on technical services such as project management, site planning, landscape design, civil/structural engineering, surveying, lighting design, architectural design, sprinkler design, environmental consultations, and fire/hazard consultations, etc. Please note that these mini grants cannot go towards City fees or building and infrastructure improvements.
We are now accepting mini grant applications on a rolling basis. Funds will be distributed on a first come, first served basis for eligible Building and Development Review projects.
