PUEBLO COUNTY — Millions of dollars in COVID-19 relief funds will soon be coming to Pueblo County.

The county is set to receive close to $6 million in federal Cares Act money.

This will be the largest amount of money the county has received in the four founds it was offered.

The money will be used to help small and medium-sized businesses, as well as non-profits.

"Really exciting. It does take a while but it does take continued focus to ensure these projects actually come into fruition and happen, so really exciting," Pueblo County Commissioner Garrison Ortiz said.

The deadline to apply for this money is Feb. 7 at midnight.

You can find applications on the Pueblo County website.
