Colorado Pandemic Resources

An easy to use list of COVID-19 information and available assistance for Coloradans

By Melissa Shrader Editor Publisher Fort Collins Macaroni Kid April 19, 2021

Colorado offers many resources for those affected by the pandemic, but sometimes they can be difficult to track down. Or, maybe you didn't realize that help was available for your particular need. 

With the help of the Governor's office, we have gathered a list of resources and websites where you can find more information on assistance available for things such as unemployment benefits, food assistance, housing, and education. Check back often -- we will update as information becomes available.
