Paint Reimbursement Grant Program
Central City is offering up to a 50% reimbursement of exterior painting and paint preparation costs, up to $2,000 per residence, for contributing properties to the National Historic Landmark District. Grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, with rolling deadlines of June 1, July 1, August 1, September 1, and October 1, 2021, or until funding is exhausted (whichever comes first).
Each year over 430 people die and over 50,000 visit the hospital due to carbon monoxide emergencies. Approximately 3,500 people die in the US from fire each year. Gilpin County, Gilpin County Sheriff Office, Timberline Fire Protection District, Central City Fire, City of Central, and City of Black Hawk have partnered in an effort to reduce carbon monoxide and fire-related injuries and deaths. Thanks to a donation of CO monitors from Xcel Energy, we are able to give residences FREE CO monitors.
If you are in need of carbon monoxide or smoke detectors call 303-515-4339, leave a message with your needs, address, and phone number. You will be contacted by the appropriate agency to assist you.
