Boulder County has the following supports available for any household that was evacuated or otherwise impacted due to the fires:

  • Food assistance

The Disaster Assistance Center also has access to other services and supports that the Boulder County Department of Housing & Human Services (HHS) offers, including help with childcare, financial assistance, guidance for homeowners who experienced losses, and more.
