New Co-op Application Portal
The Utah Office of Tourism has transferred the application process of the Traditional Cooperative Marketing Program to Salesforce in alignment with the other grants offered by the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity (GOEO). The format of the application remains the same as years prior, the hosting platform and URL link to apply have changed. The previous Simpleview Extranet URL link will not work and your username and password will not transfer over.
If you have previously applied for a grant with the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity (Utah Outdoor Recreation Grant, Rural County Grant, etc.) use that login information to access the cooperative marketing program application. If you have not applied for a grant opportunity with GOEO before, select “New User?”
Round 2 of the EDA-ARPA grant application portal will open in Summer 2023, the exact date to be determined.
The 3 opportunities include:
Feasibility/Economic Impact Studies – maximum funding at $50,000
Product Development Studios – maximum funding at $50,000
Implementation Grant – maximum funding at $25,000
Please note – after the application portal closes, the UOT ARPA Grant Committee will review all fully submitted applications and either decline or “conditionally approve” them. From there, applications that have scored enough points are forwarded to the Economic Development Administration (EDA) to conduct their review. This federal review process can take 30-60 days.
The Community and Partner Relations team will host a webinar prior to the application portal opening to provide additional details on the second round of applications and potential projects/ideas. Stay tuned to the UOT industry website for updated information.
