The Six County Association of Governments improves local government coordination of mutually beneficial programs.
Six County Emergency Business Assistance Grant Program
The Six County Association of Governments has launched an Emergency Business Assistance Grant Program in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of the program is to assist businesses located in Juab, Millard, Piute, Sanpete, Sevier, and Wayne County that have been negatively affected as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Funding for the program has been provided through the Utah State Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG). CDBG received additional funding to address the COVID-19 pandemic through the recently passed CARES Act. Typical grant amounts awarded to successful applicants will be $10,000 to $15,000 with a grant maximum of $60,000. Grants funds may be used for working capital, payroll, rent, utilities, or other expenses that a business may have.
UPDATE: Applications are no longer being accepted due to available funding having been allocated.
