Grants to help promote tourism in flood areas

DENVER – The state of Colorado is issuing $500,000 in grants to help advertise, promote and support tourism in flood-ravaged counties.

The grant money comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Development and will be awarded to groups in Larimer, Weld, Boulder, Logan and El Paso counties to help them attract visitors, support local jobs and strengthen local economies that suffered losses from the September 2013 floods.

The recipients are:

Visit Estes Park, Larimer County, $149,877
Lyons Area Chamber of Commerce, Boulder County, $100,000
Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce, El Paso County, $59,000
Boulder Convention and Visitors Bureau, Boulder County, $50,000
Colorado springs Convention and Visitors Bureau, El Paso County, $50,000
Logan County Chamber of Commerce, Logan County, $35,000
Milliken Business Association, Weld County, $29,600
Town of Nederland, Boulder County $25,923

In December 2013, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded Colorado $62.8 million in Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery funds to assist flood-impacted counties with housing, infrastructure and economic revitalization. HUD granted a waiver allowing a portion of those funds to be used to promote tourism.
