The City of Brighton has been informed that residents are receiving emails letting them know they have been approved for a COVID-19 Assistance Grant and need to set up a new bank account to receive funds. While the City does notify residents of awards via email, the City issues all grant funds either as a direct credit on your utility account or as a check. The City will never ask you to create a new account, ask for bank routing information or ask for payment to process your application or award.
If you are ever unsure if a grant-related email is legitimate, please contact the City at 303-655-2276 for English or 303-655-2003 for Spanish assistance.
