The Boulder County Wildfire Fund has distributed $ 3.8 million to nearly 1,400 people and families directly affected by the Marshall fire.
The funds released, part of an initial $ 5 million in allocated assistance, were announced Tuesday by the Boulder County Community Foundation.
“The Boulder County Community Foundation would like to thank the more than 57,000 individuals, foundations, and businesses that have donated nearly $ 19.5 million to support our friends and neighbors,” CEO Tatiana Hernandez told CFBC. “This incredible generosity and close cooperation with our county and state government partners has enabled us to distribute aid immediately. We know that money can not replace all that is lost. However, we hope that this support gives people a little feeling of stability as they navigate the next. “
A $ 150,000 grant to United Policyholders to support anyone who needs help navigating their insurance policies has been approved, according to a press release. Representatives from United Policyholders are available at Disaster Assistance Center, 1755 South Public Road, Lafayette. The DAC, which offers a range of services to people affected by the fire, is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week.
