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.

Planning Underway: Pre Disaster Hazard Mitigation Plan
The Six County Association of Governments (SCAOG) is currently in the process of updating the region’s Pre Disaster Hazard Mitigation Plan. Adoption of a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approved plan is required if a community or county would like to be eligible for certain federal funds for pre-disaster hazard mitigation projects and post-disaster recovery funding. Most jurisdictions in the region adopted the plan in 2015. During this update process, SCAOG staff will be working with local communities and county personnel from Juab, Millard, Piute, Sanpete, Sevier, and Wayne Counties. If you would like to be included in this important planning process or if you have any questions, please contact Zach Leavitt at (435)-893-0737 or firstname.lastname@example.org
