BOULDER COUNTY – A $2 million grant from the Realtors® Relief Foundation is to be distributed to victims of the December 2021 fires that ravaged Boulder County, destroying more than 1,000 residential properties.

Funded through donations from Realtors® and Realtor® organizations and administered by the Colorado Association of Realtors® Foundation, the grant will provide eligible applicants up to $3,000 of assistance per household impacted by the recent fires. Funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis to qualified applicants, victims of the Boulder County fires who have been displaced from their primary residence, based upon certain qualifications. The funds must be used for one of the following:

• Monthly mortgage expense for the primary residence that was damaged by the wildfire disaster; or
