The Boulder County Wildfire Fund has distributed $3.8 million to nearly 1,400 people and families directly impacted by the Marshall fire.
The funds released, part of an initial $5 million in allocated assistance, was announced Tuesday by the Community Foundation Boulder County.
“Community Foundation Boulder County wants to thank the over 57,000 individuals, foundations and companies who have collectively donated nearly $19.5 million to support our friends and neighbors,” CEO Tatiana Hernandez said of the CFBC. “This unbelievable generosity, and close collaboration with our county and state government partners, has allowed us to distribute assistance immediately. We know money cannot replace all that was lost. We do hope, however, that this support gives people a small sense of stability as they navigate what comes next.”
A $150,000 grant to United Policyholders to support anyone who needs help navigating their insurance policies has been approved, according to a news release. Representatives from United Policyholders are available at the Disaster Assistance Center, 1755 South Public Road, Lafayette. The DAC, which offers a variety of services to people impacted by the fire, is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week.
