2021 Marshall Wildfire – Insurance and Recovery Help

 

GRANTS AND LOANS AVAILABLE TO COLORADO WILDFIRE VICTIMS. Governor Polis has signed a bill to provide financial relief to wildfire survivors like those affected by the Marshall Fire. The Disaster Resilience Rebuilding Program (DRR) aims to help close gaps from other funds offered for the rebuilding of owner-occupied homes affected by natural disasters across the state. Applicants may apply for grants and loans up to $50,000 depending on different qualifying factors. DRR hopes to support rebuilding safer, energy efficient structures that can better withstand any future natural disasters. The program will provide funds for fire resistant building materials to better protect communities in the future. Please visit the Boulder County Recovery Navigators site and the Disaster Resilience Rebuilding site to find all of the details regarding qualifications, determining factors, applicable fund uses, and required information. The application and eligibility information will be available in August or early September 2022.
