Dear Clinton City Businesses,
First of all we are grateful you have chosen to do business in Clinton! We appreciate all you do for the community and enjoy the opportunity we have to work with you. We also wanted to pass along some information we have received from the State and the County regarding some possible resources and programs for small businesses in the State of Utah.
- PPE PUSH PACK: If you are a Utah small business with fewer than 50 employees, you may be eligible for a PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) Push Pack. The State is providing free startup PPE to help small businesses get back to work in May. PPE Push Packs may include protective face masks, hand sanitizer, gloves and other items. You will need to pick up the PPE Push Pack at various locations around the state. Contents may vary depending on state inventory. You can register below to sign up for PPE Push Pack by clicking on the link below.
- Commercial Rental Assistance Program: Please refer to the GOED landing page and the attached flyer for information regarding this grant program. The GOED (Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development) page is where the Apply Now button will appear on 5/11 at 9am. Some additional information that was forwarded to us in an email from the County provided additional background regarding this program “During the 2020 Third Special Session, the Utah Legislature appropriated $40,000,000 in SB 3006 - COVID–19 Financial Relief Funding, sponsored by Sen. Lincoln Fillmore and Rep. Mike Schultz, for the Commercial Rental Assistance Program. The legislation allows a qualified business entity to receive up to $10,000 in rental assistance. GOED will administer the program and will start accepting applications on a first come, first served basis, beginning at 9 a.m., on Monday, May 11. More information is forthcoming and the program will be very similar to the Utah Leads Together Small Business Bridge Loan program, also administered by GOED, but these will be grants rather than loans. To see if you qualify for funding and for additional details, you may click on the following link for SB 3006 and review lines 138-224: https://le.utah.gov/~2020S3/bills/sbillenr/SB3006.pdf”
