DENVER – Beginning Saturday, January 15, the operating hours for the Disaster Recovery Center will change to 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily until further notice. The center provides a location to ask questions about federal and state disaster assistance. To provide efficient access to resources, the center is co-located with Boulder County’s Disaster Assistance Center at:

The Disaster Assistance Center offers in-person support to survivors. Representatives from FEMA, the U.S. Small Business Administration and other federal, state, local and volunteer agencies can explain available assistance programs and how to apply for them and connect survivors with resources for their recovery needs.
