CARES Act Relief Fund Grant Program for City of Fort Lupton Residents & Businesses.
The City of Fort Lupton has created a COVID-19 grant relief fund for residents who have been directly affected by the pandemic and who live within the city limits of Fort Lupton. This program will be funded through the Weld County portion of the Coronavirus Relief Fund of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES ACT).
Citizen grants will be available in the amount of $250 and are based on a first come first serve basis with one application per city limit resident. Applications are available here (Spanish version here) or can be picked up in person at the police department entrance, the city recreation center entrance, and the public and school library entrance. Drop off for applications will be at the same locations. The grant money can be used for assistance with rent, mortgage payments, utilities, unforeseen financial costs, and other emergency individual needs.

If you’ve had COVID-19, Mayor Zo Stieber invites you to join her in helping to fight the virus! Did you know donating plasma can help others recover quicker from the infection?
If you’ve had COVID-19 donating plasma could be lifesaving to those who are continuing to fight the infection. After your body has fought COVID-19, your convalescent plasma now contains antibodies created by your immune system. These antibodies in the convalescent plasma attack the virus. Giving this anti-body rich plasma to those who are still fighting the disease may help them recover quicker.
People who have fully recovered from COVID-19 for at least two weeks and are feeling well are encouraged to consider donating blood or convalescent plasma. You must have had a prior diagnosis of COVID-19 documented by a lab test and meet other donor qualifications to donate plasma. If you have not had COVID-19 but would still like to help, blood donations are always welcome. For more information on donating plasma or blood, please visit: https://www.vitalant.org/
