Financial Assistance During COVID-19

Due to coronavirus many are struggling financially. Here are some local resources available in Boulder County for financial assistance.

 

  • Colorado Works/Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF) the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program helps people become self-sufficient by strengthening the economic and social stability of families. This includes monthly cash benefits, help with emergency household costs and/or services such as counseling and job training.
  • Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) provides financial assistance to eligible low-income families who need child care to support their efforts toward self-sufficiency. CCAP provides benefits for children from birth to age 12.
  • Child Welfare: Wherever possible, we surround families with the supports and resources they need to develop their own plans for stabilization and safety. Boulder County Family & Children Services Division offers many services that are aimed at helping both children and families thrive in our community.
  • Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) provides health and dental coverage for low-income families including children, adults, pregnant women, people who are blind or disabled, and the elderly.
  • Old Age Pension (OAP) provides cash benefits and in some cases Medicaid for those 60 and older who have little or no income.
