Identity Fraud Repair Kit
Identity theft is one of the fastest-growing crimes in America, impacting millions of households each year. The threat is more pervasive, and the scams are more sophisticated than ever before. Identity thieves only need a few data points—like those found in widespread data breaches - and they can infiltrate your personal financial life, creating chaos. The damage can be life-altering. ........................Identity Fraud Kit
Experts Advise COVID-19 Testing
Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is reminding Coloradans that if they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or believe they may have been exposed, they should get tested for COVID-19. Anyone with symptoms should get tested as soon as possible, stay away from others, and follow the instructions on how to isolate. If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, wait until at least 5 days have passed since the date you think you were last exposed before getting tested, unless you develop symptoms. Follow the instructions on how to quarantine after exposure to prevent further transmission.  ..........................................................................................................................................Importance Of Testing

Resources For Small Businesses
Housing and Utilities Assistance
During this year’s special session, we collaborated with bipartisan legislators in the General Assembly to allocate an additional $54 million in housing assistance through the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA). For more information on DOLA’s housing programs and to access support for your rent or mortgage, visit their website. We also allocated $5 million to Energy Outreach Colorado to help Coloradans with utility assistance. Visit their website for more information on how to access those funds. You can also find more information on other programs serving our state, such as County Housing Authorities, the Colorado Low Income Energy Assistance, and more. 
 
Food Assistance
During this pandemic, 1 in 3 Coloradans aren’t sure where their next meal is coming from. I’m proud that during the special session earlier this year we awarded $5 million to the Food Pantry Assistance Program in the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS). If you’re experiencing food insecurity, learn more about food assistance programs from the CDHS, Food Bank of the Rockies, and others serving the people of Colorado. Organizations looking to help their communities address hunger and food access issues, can apply for assistance with the Emergency Hunger Relief Fund 
 
Health Care Resources
This pandemic has made accessing and affording health care even more difficult for many Colorado families. If you’re looking for help finding physical or mental health resources, or need assistance paying health care bills, find resources here including Connect for Health Colorado and Salud Family Health Centers and more.
