The Colorado Association of Realtors (CAR) is continuing to give grants to victims of the Marshall Fire but time is running out. If you have been displaced from your home due to damage from the Marshall Fire, you can apply for a grant to help with mortgage or rent payments. There is only one week left to apply. Applications will only be accepted through April 8th, 2022. More than one million dollars has been given out so far.
Marshall Fire grant qualifications
Applicants must be full time residents and US citizens to qualify for the grant. The funds are only for housing assistance for Marshall Fire victims and are limited to $3000 per household. Checks are made payable jointly with the mortgage holder or landlord. Supporting documentation is required as well. It may take a little work to get the funds. If you need the help, the rewards will outweigh the effort.
Apply by April 8th, 2022
Fill out the application on the CAR website before April 8th if you are a Marshall Fire victim in need of the grant.
Summit County connections
Several of the victims of the Marshall Fire own a property in Summit County. These people are part of our community. While their home up here may give them an alternate place to stay, it is probably not ideal. Many families have to go to work in the Front Range or have rented their Summit County home to others to come out and ski. We are proud to be a part of an organization like CAR that is committed to helping people in Summit County and throughout the state of Colorado. Donations are still being accepted if you’d like to donate to this cause.
