Financial assistance for individuals impacted by COVID-19 can be sought through local, state, and federal support programs. Additional programs that may be beneficial include Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Low-Income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP). The Department of Social Services can also be a good resource for finding more information about state and local resources.
Colorado has a number of state funded programs that aim to assist individuals and families struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic. Research the Colorado Department of Human Services for the most uptodate information and applications. For more information about emergency rental or mortgage assistance, see Colorado’s Department of Local Affairs.
If you or a loved one needs assistance completing applications for any services, contact a social worker for additional help and information.
