Pandemic Business Assistance Resources

The City of Thornton Economic Development Office is here to support your business through this unprecedented and difficult time. The nation’s situation and response is changing by the hour and we are doing our best to stay on top of the information and resources available to you. In the meantime, as you try to bring some predictability to your next few weeks, we recommend immediately contacting the following:

  • Bank – Nationwide, banks are offering deferrals of interest, mortgages and fees to help the small business community. Contact your lender to find out what options are available to you.
  • Workers Comp & Other Insurance – some companies are working with policy holders to defer payments at this time.
