GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – Governor Polis issued an executive order Monday aimed at paying out over 165-million dollars in pandemic relief to employed Coloradans.

The one-time stimulus payment of $375 will go to Coloradans earning less than $52,000 a year and have filed for unemployment benefits during the pandemic.

The Colorado department of labor and employment estimates approximately 435,000 Coloradans will be eligible. Claimants don’t need to take any additional action to receive this payment.

Eligible claimants will receive an email or call from the state labor department and eligible recipients are encouraged to verify their contact information is correct.

Governor Polis says this state COVID-19 relief package will serve as a lifeline to those who can’t wait for Congress to pass another pandemic relief package before the election.
