Utah – The Utah Labor Commission has established a $2 million grant for small businesses in the state. It’s using federal CARES Act funds as part of Utah’s approach to the coronavirus pandemic. The grant provides reimbursements to businesses with fewer than 50 employees who pay workers to stay home during the quarantine. Businesses may receive money to pay employees up to 40 hours per week. So essentially, if your business has an employee who was exposed to or tested positive for COVID and has to quarantine without work, this grant is set up to help fund their regular pay.
Park City is full of entrepreneurial small business owners who may have been impacted by the pandemic and if you have less then 50 employees you may qualify for this grant.
Application Deadline: December 30, 2020 is the final quarantined or isolated day for which a request may be made under this grant. All grant requests must be made on or before 5:00 PM, Thursday, January 14, 2021.
Program Start Date: October 1, 2020 (Incurred expenses must be on or after October 1, 2020)
Program End Date: When available funds are exhausted or December 30, 2020.
