There are two main funding opportunities available for businesses in the state of Utah. As we find more, we'll post them on our app.

  • Utah Small Business Vaccination Grant: The Small Business Employee Vaccination Grant offers capital to employers who provide paid time off for employees who are not eligible for paid time off. The grant may be used for both full-time and part-time employees to do the following: receive a Covid-19 vaccine or take a dependent (5-18) to get theirs, or recuperate after receiving the vaccine or help a dependent recuperate from their vaccine. Other requirements apply.
  • Emergency Capital Investment Program: The Emergency Capital Investment Program (ECIP) was created to encourage low- and moderate-income community financial institutions to support small businesses and consumers in their communities. A total of $9 billion was dedicated to certified Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) or minority depository institutions (MDIs) to provide loans, grants, and other assistance for Utah small businesses. Contact the CDFI or MDI closest to you for more details on open grants and loan options.
