The Governor’s Office of Economic Development and Department of Heritage and Arts will roll out several robust grant programs over the next few weeks. The Utah State Legislature allocated these CARES grants to help businesses and nonprofits on our road to economic recovery.
A Zoom webinar is scheduled at 11 a.m. Tuesday, July 14, to provide information and answer questions about the following grants:
- $25 million, Shop in Utah grant entices small business customers with incentives.
- $5 million, Safe in Utah grant reimburses or funds safe small business operations.
- $9 million, Cultural Assistance grant benefits communities or artists affected by the pandemic.
- $40 million, Commercial Rental Assistance (ComRent), provides rental relief to Utah small businesses. Significant changes were made in the session to simplify access and expand benefits.
A primary emphasis of the webinar will be the Shop in Utah $25 million grant, which will reimburse businesses and nonprofits for COVID-related business losses provided that 50 percent of their grant is passed on to their customers in the form of discounts. The Utah Office of Tourism will also present a marketing platform that will assist businesses in getting the word out about their discount offerings.
