The CARES Act authorized the State of Utah to receive approximately $3.2 million through HUD’s Community Development Block Grant. The $3.2 million was allocated to only the Small Cities Program of Utah, of which Carbon, Emery, Grand and San Juan Counties are a part of – along with another 22 counties. Southeastern Utah is expecting to receive approximately $465,299 of the $3.2 million.
Southeastern Utah Association of Local Governments is the entity that will be administering the $465,299 in the region and have recently decided through a board vote on what the funding will be allocated towards. A portion, $85,000, of the funding is set-aside to assist food banks in Carbon, Emery, Grand and San Juan Counties during the COVID19 epidemic. The food banks have been hit hard during the epidemic as there has been an increase of clients as well as food shortages. Other funding, $75,000, has been authorized for use of testing through the Southeast Utah Health Department and San Juan Health to test higher risk populations for COVID19 as well as the purchase and supply of masks to businesses and customers. The majority of the funding, approximately $258,000 will be used to assist local businesses in Carbon, Emery, Grand and San Juan Counties with grant funding and a business online training on resiliency and management after an epidemic like COVID19. The grant funding will be a competitive process for $5,000 which could be used to pay rent/utilities, immediate operating costs such as PPE, diversification of business, and other eligible uses of grant funding.
