COUNTY SMALL BUSINESS 

GRANT PROGRAM

We understand the challenges many small businesses in our communities are currently facing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, business closures and high unemployment. Rich, Juab, Emery, and Box Elder Counties partnered with UAC to develop a grant program to support small businesses financially impacted by COVID-19. This grant program is being supported by Federal CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Funds. 

The program is now closed.

If you have any questions, please email admin@uacnet.org.

  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

  • Protective Retrofits
