DENVER – In responding to the Marshall and Middle Fork fires that devastated Boulder County, the Colorado Chamber is working to offer resources to businesses impacted by the fires.

Colorado Chamber President and CEO Loren Furman said, “The Colorado Chamber stands united with our members and all local businesses and residents impacted by this tragedy. As our communities assess the damage and begin to rebuild, we stand ready to support Colorado businesses in navigating recovery.”

There are several resources available to businesses who suffered losses to provide assistance. Qualified businesses can apply for federal disaster recovery assistance. Employers with questions about their insurance should contact the Colorado Division of Insurance. Individuals impacted by the fires can also access disaster unemployment insurance.

The Northwest Chamber Alliance, a partner of the Colorado Chamber, has established a centralized webpage for businesses to find resources on federal and state aide, local resources, and donation information.
