  • Are physically located within the City of Fort Collins boundaries

  • Have an active City of Fort Collins sales tax license
  • Have no unpaid code enforcement or tax liens

The assistance, according to the city, will not be expected to be repaid. Fort Collins is dedicated to keeping our businesses thriving, so even if you aren't a business owner, continue to order out, grab some curbside beer, and keep Fort Collins open!
