COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado Springs Downtown Development Authority (DDA) announced a $400,000 small business relief fund for eligible businesses Wednesday.

Grants are now available for certain restaurants, bars, salons, and other retailers that have been hit hard by the stay-at-home order.

The DDA said more than 29 percent of the businesses downtown are locally owned and operated.

Applications for these grants are being accepted right now and must be submitted by April 22.

The DDA will announce the grant award recipients in mid-May.
