Type and Scope of services to be performed:

This new contract will provide for the continued administration and execution of the city’s Small Business Emergency Relief Program (SBERF, with this contract specifically using federal coronavirus relief funds. Given the time urgency and extreme need of the most vulnerable businesses in Denver’s economy, the SBERF was launched earlier this spring with a mix of city General Fund, anticipated federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, and now federal coronavirus relief funds.

 

Since the crisis began, DEDO has been actively providing grant assistance up to a maximum of $7,500 to eligible Denver businesses experiencing economic impacts resulting from COVID-19. As of May 29, 500 grants averaging $6,404 have been awarded to SBERF applicants, dispersing a total of nearly $3,225,000 into the community from the approximately $3,500,000 available thus far for SBERF.

 

MHUW is consulting with and providing technical assistance to DEDO staff in reviewing the program applications, and is also conducting the financial review and analysis of standard accounting documentation used to determine applicants’ revenue decline and financial impacts.

 

An important note in this current contract is that $1,000,000 will be directed specifically to vulnerable businesses in the Priority Neighborhoods identified by the DEDO’s Neighborhoods/NEST division: Elyria- Swansea, Globeville, NE Park Hill, East Colfax, Montbello, Sun Valley, Valverde, Villa Park, West Colfax, and Westwood. The remaining $3,400,000 will be available to applicants citywide.
