The COVID-19 PPE support grant program for Utah businesses, known as “Safe In Utah,” continues to accept applications.
The $5 million initiative uses federal CARES Act funds as part of Utah’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. It includes grants for a business’s COVID-19 response that consists of the purchase of personal protective equipment (PPE), implementation of workplace redesigns, additional signage, new technology solutions for distance working and other items to comply with COVID-19 public health guidelines on safely returning employees to work.
The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED), at the Legislature’s request, administers the program.
Safe In Utah began accepting applications late last month. By Aug. 31, GOED must award at least 75 percent of grant funds to small businesses of 250 or fewer full-time-equivalent employees. The program is primarily designed to help Utah small businesses.
