GREELEY — Weld County announced this week the receipt of just under $9.8 million in funding from the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Emergency Rental Assistance program to help local residents struggling to pay rent or utility bills during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The EPEWA Act went into effect on January 1, 2021. Employers had to make robust changes to address and implement external employment opportunities and internal employee advancement opportunities. Is your business compliant?
“We’re excited to announce we received four times the amount of funding we were expecting when we submitted our application,” Weld County director of finance Don Warden said in a prepared statement. “This should go a long way in helping Weld County residents with delinquent rent and utility bills.”
