ASSISTANCE FOR OUR LOCAL BUSINESS COMMUNITY
The Mesa County COVID-19 Business Assistance Grant was created in partnership with our local Enterprise Zone in an effort to support small businesses located in Mesa County who have been negatively impacted by the recent pandemic. With over 71% of local businesses reporting economic challenges posed by COVID-19, this fund is designed to act as a resource for those local businesses who are in need of assistance.
This grant program is for businesses located within Mesa County. This program allows applicants to use funds to assist with expenses related to critical operation such as mortgage and lease payments, software subscriptions, insurance premiums, and more.

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY
To address the massive need for local business assistance, the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce has created a process for corporate and philanthropic partners to make donations to help expand the program.
Donors having made a certified contribution may claim 25% of a cash donation as an income tax credit, and half of that amount (12.5%) for an in-kind donation. The actual credit earned is figured based on all eligible contributions during the tax year, and capped at $100,000 per tax-payer with the balance carried forward up to 5 years.
