LOVELAND, CO – February 24, 2021: The Loveland Downtown District and City of Loveland announced today the creation of a $26,000 fund to provide assistance to local businesses for outdoor dining programs as they
experience indoor capacity reductions due to COVID-19.
The Loveland Patio Assistance Program will provide grant funding of $500 per business to assist with the purchase of outdoor heaters for seating areas, propane expenses to heat outdoor seating areas, the cost of tents or other structures used for outdoor seating, and tent repairs from wear and tear of outdoor usage as a result of COVID-19.
The grants will supply funding for a time period that runs from February 3, 2021 until April 6, 2021. These funds cannot be used for expenses before this time period.
This program is citywide and available to any restaurant, bar, brewery or retailer located within the City of Loveland on a first come, first served basis. Awards will be made in mid-March and checks will be issued upon
submittal of a W-9 form to the City of Loveland.
The Loveland Patio Assistance Program will supply grant funds up-front and must be supported at the end of the grant period with receipts. Failure to supply receipts supporting the grant amount will require the grantee business to repay funds to the City of Loveland.
